Indiana University has entered into a contract with Barnes and Noble to manage all its bookstores. Therefore, the policies and practices stated below are subject to change.
As soon as the schedule for the next semester has been decided upon, the Bookstore manager contacts each faculty member (or dean) requesting the list of textbooks, reference books, and supplies that will be needed for each course.
Instructors are responsible for obtaining their own desk copies of textbooks. Desk copy order forms are available from unit secretaries and/or the Bookstore. In case of an emergency, where there is not sufficient time to obtain a copy of a text before a course commences, the Bookstore will sell the instructor a copy with the understanding that the purchase price will be refunded when the copy from the publisher is turned in. It should be noted that the Bookstore cannot accept replacement copies of texts which are marked "desk, not for resale" or "examination copy only."
Faculty and staff members are allowed a 10% discount on all purchases over $1.00.
