Instructors are sent forms each semester and they let us know which textbooks and other learning resources they want us to issue for their classes. We order the textbooks, process them, and put them on the shelf.
Students come to Textbook Services and use their ID card to get a printout of the books required for the semester. We have all the required information in our system, so students do not need to have a schedule, list of books, or anything else to pick up books. The only thing required is a photo ID.
Once the book list is printed, the books are gathered from the stacks. Our books are arranged in a numerical system, so it is as easy as counting. Once all books are gathered, students will go to the checkout terminals and a staff member will check out the books. Each book has a unique ID assigned to it, and you are responsible for returning that exact book.
Returning a different copy of the book does not excuse you from the liability of returning the one you originally checked out on your record. If you think you may have gotten your book mixed up with someone else you may call Textbook Services at 715-425-3106. and we will be able to tell you which copy is checked out to you.
