As the name implies we are your source for all course material needs for your classes, whether you are teaching bachelors, masters, or doctoral degree students.
The textbook industry has expanded well beyond the traditional printed page text. Online learning components have become a standard in today's classroom environment. Beyond that there are all the things that you are requiring students to have for class, such as lab manuals and notebooks, safety goggles, art supplies, bluebooks, scantron sheets, even pencils and paper!
The FSU Bookstore is contractually operated by the Follett Higher Education Group.
From the FHEG homepage:
Follett Higher Education Group is a family-owned bookstore provider that has operated with integrity and respect for more than 139 years. We manage more than 930 bookstores nationwide and provide management systems, support services, and used textbooks to over 1,800 independently managed bookstores. Our vision is to help your bookstore succeed by sharing the knowledge that helped us succeed.
As indicated above, we are your one source for all course related materials. It is our job to take the Course Material Adoption you turn in, source those materials, stock them on our shelves and get them into your student's hands in the most efficient manner possible. We are your partner in getting the right materials into your students hands, whether that is a traditional textbook, a native digital product, laboratory materials, or basic homework supplies.
The FSU Bookstore administers the university's Textbook Rental Program. Under this program your students acquire the majority of their books by paying a flat fee as part of their tuition. All non-consumable books over $25.00 that are used at least every other semester for a minimum of 4 semesters are eligible for the program. Faculty guidelines for rental textbook selection are here.
Textbook adoptions may be submitted to the bookstore in several ways:
All adoptions submitted must include Department, Course and Section for the class; estimated enrollment; and the Author, Title, and ISBN for each book. Books should also be indicated as required or recommended.
If no text is required for your course, please notify the Bookstore so we can let your students know when they inquire about textbooks.
