Winter 2023

Online Coure Adoptions (OCA) for Winter 2023 will be opening October 17th and closing December 5th, with a full timeline below.
 
All faculty and staff who place book orders can log into the OCA portal. The Book Buyers use this information to populate each semester with the required course materials for students. Please check your OCA dashboards for accuracy of course listings, and contact your respective buyer regarding: instructor or coordinator reassignments, and additional courses to be added or removed. Adoptions will continue to be added by program for Winter 2023. 
 
Each distinct edition of a textbook, including every physical and digital version, will have a unique ISBN. Please only submit the ISBNs of the items you require, or allow as alternatives. For example, you might list 1 required physical textbook, and 1 alternative digital etext. They may be the same edition, but the physical and digital will have unique ISBNs. 
 
If you are using an Open Education Resource (OER) or VitalSource e-text, please indicate in the same manner as you would for 'No Book Required,' and we'd be happy to direct students to the resource, even if we do not sell it ourselves.
 
If you have any questions or concerns please contact your buyer:

Do you require items other than books?

See also: Custom Merchandise

Some classes require a particular calculator, notebook, safety equipment, or uniform. We can help with that.

Please contact our General Merchandise buyer, Donna Mahon, with your items and course code. These items can potentially be added to your course as a suggested purchase, alongside the textbook. Or they could be located in our generic Course Supplies section if they may be of interest to other students.
