Help Yourself and Your Students: Submit Your Adoptions Early
When you submit your textbook orders early you give the JMU Bookstore the information and the time we need to:
- Reduce or eliminate out-of-stock situations
- Correct publisher errors
- Alert you to out-of-print titles and edition changes
- Buy back more books from students for your class
- Order more used books (when available) for your class
