Books may also be obtained from any vendor that sells college-level textbooks, including online booksellers, university bookstores, and publishers, but you must purchase the correct edition of the textbooks. ODL does not sell textbooks, so please do not send money for textbooks to ODL.

You must use the correct edition of the textbook, as specified in your course syllabus. Please take care to provide the correct information about the author, title, edition, and date of publication when ordering your books. If complete information is not given when the order is placed, the wrong edition may be sent. Ordering textbooks by the ISBN is preferred and will reduce the chance of ordering the wrong textbook edition.

When contacting any of the listed bookstores, please tell the staff that you need a textbook for an ODL course. ODL courses often use editions different from campus sections of the same course.
