Instructors are asked to submit their course material selections for both summer and fall by Wednesday, April 15. The S&T Store appreciates your assistance in making course materials less expensive for students.
Students will soon begin asking about materials for summer and fall courses; please submit your course material information in a timely matter so it can be added to the bookstore’s website.
The bookstore’s goal is to reduce the cost of textbooks for students. This initiative includes expanding options for textbook rentals, the creation of custom course materials, continuing to adopt a book even after it has gone out of print, providing digital alternatives, and expanding the use of the AutoAccess program. The S&T Store also searches book markets for lower-cost used alternatives. The S&T Store will continue to use these programs, and any new programs that may arise as course materials evolve, to reduce the cost of course materials.
If a course does not require a textbook, it should be submitted as no text required. This is as important as submitting a book or other materials because it informs the students that they do not need to purchase anything for a particular course. If there is material that is located online, on Canvas, at the library or in notes that will be handed out in class for free, please submit this information as well to inform students that they do not need to purchase anything from the S&T Store for a particular course.
To submit and review instructor requisitions, please visit umst.verbacollect.com, login, click on the appropriate courses, and submit or review the courses.
Instructors can go to the link near the bottom of an email from the S&T Store on March 10. The email will be from “MU SAS MU Text Adoptions” of from “The S&T Store” with the subject line: We Need Your spring 2020 Course Adoption.”

There are a few options when comes to entering your book information.

The email contains a link to the courses for which you are assigned.
