*Please note, textbooks for classes held on the W. A. Lettinga campus are available, not all books for all classes are on the shelves. If you are taking online classes or attending classes at another campus, the books you need may not be available in the store. Please shop the online store!

Tips on Shopping for Textbooks:

  • Shop sooner rather than later – more used books will be available and you will be sure you have all of your materials ready to start on the first day of class.
  • If ordering online, do so at least 2 weeks before classes start to allow for shipping time.
  • Buy used books when available to save money.
  • Bring your class schedule or course syllabus with you. You can print it from the Student Connection.
  • Check the textbook link on for price and ISBN information
  • Ask for assistance from bookstore staff. They are there to help you get the right text books, materials and supplies.
  • If your book comes with an online application, do not open or activate codes until needed for class.
  • Books for online courses or in-seat classes at other campus locations order books from our Official Online Bookstore at /onlinebooks

Where can I find the textbook information - ISBN, title, price, etc...

You can find textbook information online at the official online bookstore, /onlinebooks or at the Davenport Spirit Store, or in the bookstore on the book shelf tag by the course subject and number.
