Faculty FAQ - COVID-19

Last updated on December 18, 2020

Faculty book orders can be submitted to textbooks@uwindsor.ca. The Campus Bookstore has been selling both digital codes and hard copy textbooks to students through our online web orders system.

Teaching courses online has not changed the course material adoption process. The earlier, that we receive your order adoption by email or through our electronic Online Course Adoption (OCA), the quicker we can process your requests and eliminate distribution problems.

The Campus Bookstore continues to encourage Faculty to adopt digital alternatives for course materials for the Fall semester, however we are selling Print copies as well. The Campus Bookstore is receiving smaller shipments at this time, and we will work with Faculty to obtain course materials in any format. We are committed to finding the best available options for your courses and will work with publishers to make sure your books arrive as soon as possible; in the format you need.

 Class Start  Deadline
  July   April 30
  Fall   June 15
  Winter   October 15

For desk copies, please contact the Publisher, your sales representative or your department Secretary. They need to verify the course that you plan on using the course material and can follow up with you should you wish to preview other material. The Campus Bookstore cannot provide this for you.

Students can order their course materials online at www.uwindsor.ca/bookstore.

Faculty can share the link below that will help answer students' questions.
