Form and submit. Once your information is submitted,

Determine the Quantity of Textbooks to Order
We strive to have, at minimum, enough books for everyone
who wants one. To achieve this goal, we carefully review
all the information we have available to us. This includes
the quantity students request, as well as the sales history
of both the book and the course. We do not adjust the requested
quantity arbitrarily. Our thorough examination process is
used to determine the number of books that will fulfill
the needs of every student who wishes to buy the book.
There is more to course packs than meets the eye. In accordance
with federal law, copyright permission must be obtained
for copyrighted sources included in the course pack. This
is a time consuming process. Permissions are held either
by publishers or individual authors, and royalties generally
must be paid to the rights holder.
Often, title rights are sold from one publisher to another
or ownership reverts from a publisher or a succession of
publishers to the author, who is not always easy to locate.
The process of tracking down the copyright holder and then
obtaining permission is generally laborious, and many publishers
require as much as eight weeks advance notice of a request
for permission to copy from a work. Obtaining permissions
for thousands of sources is both time and labor intensive.
Course pack prices are determined by the cost of publisher
royalties plus fees for photocopying and labor costs associated
with obtaining copyright permissions. Royalties and labor
costs vary from pack to pack.
While it might seem a more expedient solution to simply
copy material without notifying the author(s), doing so
would run counter to academic ethos of respecting the work,
ideas and intellectual property of authors. It also would
violate the legal rights of the author or publisher.
It is essential that students request course packs at the
same time that textbook information is requested. This leaves
us sufficient time to handle any copyright-related obstacles
that arise and helps us to have course packs ready when
students need them.
Please notify us when a book of yours is published. We
not only carry a full selection of books by campus authors,
we can also arrange book signings and pre-publication receptions.
- Textbook Information
We stock all required textbooks for course use
at American Liberty University. We also supply a
large number of used textbooks for students' convenience
and savings. Buying used textbooks saves students
up to 25% off the publisher's list prices. In addition,
we offer continuous year-round buyback of textbooks.
Please note: American Liberty University I.D. is
required to sell back students' textbooks.
All books we buy must be in good condition. The
bindings must be in good shape, with covers and
all pages intact. The pages must be readable. They
should be free of any highlighting, underlining,
or notes, which make the text illegible. Study guides
and workbooks must be "like new" and completely
free of writing.
Current Edition Textbooks in Use Next Term
We want to buy current edition books that your professors
have ordered for use next term. As soon as the faculty
submits their book orders, usually close to the
end of each term, we have "demand" for those books.
We will pay students up to 40% of the selling price
for hard cover and large-format soft cover textbooks
in good condition, if they have been ordered for
the next term and we are not overstocked.
When We Have Filled Your Professors' Orders
When we have bought enough books from students to
fill a professor's order, we can no longer pay 40%
of the selling price for that title. This is because
we are fully stocked and no longer have "demand"
for that book.
Disk, Tape, and Workbook Packages
If a text was sold as part of a package containing
the book and a computer disk, an audiotape, or a
workbook, these items must be included when students
sell back the book.
