Submit your textbooks orders for Spring 2020

The AUC Bookstores would like to explain how textbook ordering procedures will now differ from previous years—starting with orders for fall 2016 text and course books. As a general rule, books currently used in AUC classes fall into one of the following three categories: Textbooks that form a major teaching component of an introductory course. These books will continue to be ordered and stocked by the AUC Textbook Store. (Note that these textbooks will often be titles we have in our existing stock, and we will work with departments to use the current stock before ordering extra copies, as necessary, and based on previous sales history.) Books that are part of courses using many titles for background reading (such as novels, plays, or other supplementary reading). In this case, AUC Bookstore staff will check the availability of the title in our existing stock, or its availability in digital form - either as copyright-free or digital editions (for example, iBook or Kindle formats). We will also liaise with our colleagues in the AUC library, to see whether these titles are readily available to students from their collections. If the book is available in these forms, we will no longer order it for the bookstores. Students should be directed by teaching faculty to source the book by the other means available. Textbooks in e-versions. These are usually introductory course books in digital form with associated individual access codes. The publisher sometimes tailors these specifically to an AUC course. Such e-textbook titles will be assessed on a title-by-title basis and AUC Bookstores will do all it can to facilitate availability by working closely with faculty, the AUC library, and publishers. The AUC Press Bookstore will begin accepting textbook orders for the Spring 2020 semester starting Sunday, October 13, 2019 Textbook orders for the Spring 2020 semester should be submitted to the AUC Bookstore not later than Saturday, November 30, 2019 to ensure timely delivery of assigned AUC textbooks at the lowest cost.
