Return to top of page If both new and used copies are shown on the web site, will I get the book I order?We work hard to provide the exact books you requested, however availability (especially for used books) can be limited, and are sold on a 'first come first serve' basis. If you are looking for used books, the best thing to do is to order them as early as possible.

Return to top of page If I select No Substitutions on my book order, what happens if that book is unavailable?Choosing not to allow substitutions will result in the title being cancelled if it is not in stock in the condition orderd. Example: You place an order for a used copy of "Gender in a Changing World" and select no substitutions, the bookstore was only able to source new copies of that title. In this scenario we have the title in stock but in the alternate condition, selecting no substitutions communicates to our team that you'd prefer not to purchase one of the new copies we have on hand.

Choice - You can choose either of the books with this option. Only one is needed for the class.
