Rental Textbook Purchases
If you wish to buy the textbook you have rented, for your professional library, a purchase period is set each semester. Buy your current rental textbooks — or any textbook in the Instructional Resource Rental inventory — for 25% off the replacement price. You may buy the materials any time during the purchase period; the sale is final.
PURCHASE PERIODS FOR RENTAL MATERIALS
Fall Semester 2014 > September 15 – December 5, 2014
Spring Semester 2015 > February 9 – May 1, 2015
Once the purchase period has passed for a particular semester, IRR Department materials cannot be purchased until the next semester's purchase period, since the staff needs to take stock of inventory for the following semester.
Students taking their courses online may purchase their rental textbooks by calling the University Bookstore at 715-836-2172.
