Procedure 3.01.23 - Curriculum Textbook Adoption


Each department shall establish common textbook requirements for each course. It is preferred that all delivery methods use the same text, but in some cases it is understood that distant course may have other requirements. Individual faculty members may have supplemental texts for their course with the approval of the department and the appropriate dean. The bookstore will deliver Textbook Requisition Forms to the appropriate dean for completion. Unless the department (or faculty member for supplemental materials) notifies the dean of a change, the same materials will be used in the class from the previous time the course was offered. If an edition change occurs the department (or faculty member for supplemental materials) will be notified so it can request a change of materials if desired. If no notification of change in the required time frame is received, the new edition will be chosen. Faculty should order desk copies of textbooks directly from the publisher using the method prescribed by the publisher. The bookstore does not routinely supply faculty with desk copies of textbooks they have adopted. Any request for purchase of textbooks through the bookstore must be justified as an exception and approved by the appropriate dean.
