  • Course Material Availability: We strive to have all the books on our shelves when classes start. However, there are occasions when we may not have the books on the shelf when you arrive to our Bookland location. Reasons for this include: we did not receive an order from the faculty member, received a late order from the faculty member, publishers have sold out of the textbook, custom books may take from 1-4 weeks and are only printed upon receiving the order, or not a required text. There are times when an instructor suggests titles and asks to list them as optional. We may not order any of these or only a few depending on the sales histor. We are always happy to special order a title. If books have not arrived in time for class, the shelf tag will have an Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA). You may choose to pay for a copy of a book that has not arrived and once it arrives, you will be contacted by e-mail or phone.
