How to best help your students
Get your textbooks orders turned in early. This allows the bookstore team to get as many used textbooks as we can.
Loose leaf books are not always the best options.It may be cheaper up front for your students but it might eliminate the buyback value at the end of the semester.
Packages with access codes are not always the best option unless you are going to require the students to use the access and again might eliminate the buyback value at the end of the semester.
