Lecturer textbook order form
Hi! Welcome to the vicbooks textbook ordering section.
Please give us as much information as you can, especially if you are setting a book from a small or specialised publisher. As for class size, we know that it's just a shot in the dark until those little bottoms hit the seats, but it gives us some idea as to the magnitude of the order: one copy, ten copies, one hundred, etc.
We make a distinction between Prescribed Texts and Recommended Reading. A Prescribed Text is a book that you expect the class to buy, read and treasure because you use it extensively in the course (and it may have all the answers in the back). A Recommended Reading is a good read but basically not compulsory. Student Study Guides accompanying a Prescribed Text and Solutions Manuals tend to fall into the category of Recommended Readings, as do extremely expensive books or books that cover only part of the course.
You can request desk or inspection copies straight from the publisher - if you are unsure of contact details let us know and we will put you in touch with the appropriate person. Publishers prefer to send these directly to you so remember to make your request in plenty of time.
If there's anything else you want to tell us about the books or your class, you can pop in and see us, or e-mail at Lecturer orders & Enquiries.
Please note: if the order you place using the online form is successful then you will go through to a screen saying this and giving the option to print a copy of the order. You will also get an email confirming reciept of your order within a few days. If you are unsure if your order has gone through please call 463 5516 or email Lecturer orders & Enquiries.view printable format
