Bookstore and Textbooks

Students, here is important information regarding the ordering of your Fall '09 textbooks and course materials!

The textbook list is posted in three places for your convenience:
- the CRCD homepage
- the CRCD bookstore page (under student assistance)
- the Registration page (also under registration)
It is labeled "Fall 2009 Textbook List".

The file is in a PDF format, so you should be able to print it easily. You will also see a new section on the list which is listed as "Used Textbooks", for all registrations you will use the "new" textbook price. Once orders are submitted to the bookstore we will allocate the used textbooks FIFO (First In First out), and process a refund at that time to your account. We hope to allow this option prior to registration in the future.

Another feature that we have added to the Fall 09 textbook/material mail out will be the automated confirmation number. As your textbooks are shipped from the CRCD location an email will be generated to you ( via the email you have on file in our system) with a list of materials ordered and the confirmation of the package being shipped. You can start looking for this email on or around August 17th till the end of the month. We hope this will assist you in tracking your order.

The bookstore contact information is: 907-474-7714 or toll free 1-877-651-4002 Fax: 907-474-7743

Other contacts at the CRCD Bookstore: MaryAlice Short (CRCD Bookstore Manager) direct line 907-474-7714

Natonya Tata (Textbook Coordinator) direct line 907-474-7712
