The Google Docs for faculty textbook submissions for Spring, 2019 are now open. Please have your textbooks entered no later than October 15, 2018.
Each program has its own Google Doc. Click below on the link for your program:
I have created Google Docs for each program and have pre-filled the book details for the books that were used for each course the last time I’m aware that the course ran. For some courses you will need to input all book details. It is up to you to confirm and approve all titles and ensure that the correct, current edition of each book is listed. This is the spreadsheet that will determine the books that will be listed in our online Bookstore.
OPEN ACCESS BOOKS: If you are using Open Access textbooks for your class, please include that information on the Google Doc, including the URL for the text. MBS allows us to list these titles and have links to them. It will cut down on student questions and will allow students to look at the books prior to the start of the semester if they are all listed through the Bookstore.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Bookstore needs to list all resources that students will be expected to purchase or use for your course(s), so that we have good financial transparency for students. We know that many programs require students to purchase books one semester with the understanding that these same books will be used in later semesters. To be most clear to students, we want to list all titles you expect your students to have, each semester. I will craft a “note” to go into the Bookstore to tell students if they will be required to use a text for subsequent semesters, so that they won’t re-sell the book or get a version that expires.
Here are some things for you to watch for:
