Online Book Requisitions
It's time to start preparing for your requisitions for books, coursepacks, materials to submit for Summer and Fall 2014.
Midway through the Spring semester, an email from Dowdy Student Store will be sent to all faculty teaching Summer terms and Fall semester 2014 courses, that include a personalized login link to the new textbook requisition system. It will also contain the due date for requisitions.
If you need assistance, please click on the link above and follow the instructions, or contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
With our online textbook requisition system you enter your information, the system keeps track of your textbook requisitions, and sends automated email reminders.
Your textbook contacts at Dowdy are Barbara Ward, Justin Bennett, or Shirley Johnson at the Wright Building location, and Shannon Tillett at the Medical Bookstore.
Why do we need your information so soon? There are several reasons:
1) So that book lists can be prepared for student schedules so they can find lower-cost textbooks.
2) The bookstore can search for more used books on the wholesale market to have on the shelves for students.
3. It is mandated by the UNC-GA that a minimum of 90% of all textbook requisitions be submitted by ECU faculty and reported at a date PRIOR to each buyback. The Provost, and Deans ask to be notified of faculty who meet this deadline each term as this must be listed in an annual report to the state. ECU is compared to other universities across the state in this report. In addition, the HEOA, Higher Education Opportunity Act has strict criteria and mandates requiring textbook information be provided to students to aid in determining textbooks costs when they register for courses.
