Ordering Books for Courses

In most cases, your department or program administrative assistant will handle book orders for the courses you teach in that department or program. 

Book Orders

When it comes to special orders and coursepacks, however, you may wish to deal directly with a local supplier.  By far the most popular local supplier in Hanover is Wheelock Books; the only other option at present is the Dartmouth Bookstore. The Baker-Berry Library can also help you with Online Reserve systems that work somewhat like digital coursepacks and are free to you and your students.

The Director of DCAL recommends that you not order books for your students. Instead, post on the course website or Blackboard site accurate information about the books you wish students to buy and allow them to order them online, or in a bookstore, as they see fit. This way they can shop for the best price before they return to campus.
