At our end of term buybacks in May, August, and December, the bookstore will pay 50% of the current price of a new copy of a textbook if:1. The bookstore has received a request from the instructor stating that your textbook is being used for the following term.
For books that are not needed here on campus, the bookstore acts as an agent for several used book wholesalers.
