Textbooks & Course Materials
In most cases, your department or program administrative assistant will handle book orders for the courses you teach in that department or program. Faculty may enter required or recommended textbooks in BannerStudent. See the guide, Textbook Tool Guide: Entering Data Using BannerStudent for Faculty. Federal Law requires that textbook information for courses be available when courses open for registration. Registration dates are posted by the Registrar’s office.
When it comes to special textbook orders, you may wish to deal directly with a local supplier. The Dartmouth Library can help you with Course Reserves, which can accommodate both print and digital requests.
Ordering books for your students is not recommended. Instead, share information about required materials with your students in advance of the start of term to allow them to acquire them as they see fit.
