Book orders for Fall 2013 courses are due to Melanie (stein196@umn.edu) by Wednesday, April 24

Book orders for Fall 2013 courses are due to Melanie (stein196@umn.edu) by Wednesday, April 24. Please continue reading for the order form, bookstore ordering guidelines, and notes that help process your order and obtain desk copies.

Notes from staff:
-Please complete one book order form for each course, and email your order as an attachment to stien196@umn.edu by April 24, 2013.
-Let us know whether or not you need a personal desk copy. We will be requesting copies for your TAs.
- We submit a request to the publisher for desk copies after we receive your completed order form. It can take weeks to obtain desk copies, so the earlier you submit your order, the earlier you and your TAs will have copies of the books. Please only request desk copies of titles for which you have not previously received desk copies. Desk copies cannot be guaranteed for faculty and instructors if the deadline for book orders is not met.
-If your course is cross-listed, include all department names on your order form so that all sections of the course will have books ordered.
- Include the ISBN of the edition you want . If the ISBN is incorrect, you may end up with a different edition of the book.
-If you are NOT ordering books or ordering a packet instead, be sure to let Melanie know.
Bookstore guidelines:
-Submitting book orders before Finals Week of the current semester gives the bookstore the opportunity to pay students the best price for their books during buyback.
- If you delete or change books for your course after they have shipped from the publisher, your research account will be charged for return fees.
-If know you will be using a book in the future, please indicate when that is. This allows the bookstore to plan to purchase used copies, saving students money.
- Be sure to specify whether the book is Required (R) or Optional (O).
