Faculty and Staff, did you know that adopting textbooks early actually helps students save money?
The sooner the Tivoli Station knows your textbook needs, the sooner that we can begin to search for used books across the country.
Early adoptions also allow the store to make the book available for rent and research available cost saving versions, such as looseleaf and ebooks.Textbook Adoption DatesFall Books: April 1stSpring Books: October 15thSummer Books: March 15thContact UsTo request a personalized link to our online ordering siteLorena Aranda303firstname.lastname@example.orgAdvantages to early adoptions:Textbooks are available to rent; saving students up to 60%More used books are availableWhen old editions are adopted early, it gives us time to competitively obtain and price the books
We can source less expensive inventory and offer more competitive pricing.Students can sell back their textbooks for up to half the new price.
The textbook industry is rapidly changing, giving us the opportunity to change with it as we join with new partners to replace old standards. We are making efforts to be more price competitive & to offer students alternatives to the traditional book purchase. These efforts do take more time than simply placing an order with a publisher - so submitting your book adoptions by the deadline or earlier is greatly appreciated.
We encourage faculty to contact their publisher representatives about prices and any alternative formats they can offer. We are also happy to do this for you, just let us know!
We don't expect every adoption on time-- but it does benefit students and makes the school compliant with both state and federal laws. We acknowledge that faculty may be considering changing books, new editions may be coming out, or the department schedule is not yet set. We are happy to accept the orders when decisions are made, but an effort should be made to place orders as soon as possible.
