U.S. Bookstore Updates

Effective summer quarter (July 1, 2019), CityU’s online bookstore will list only those course resources adopted in print format. Required online resources that are available to students at no cost are listed on Course Resource Guides (available 24/7) or in Blackboard courses (available 3 days prior to the start of class).

Course Resource Guides may be found through the Course Overviews and Resources link on the portal or by clicking the Find Your Textbook button on the library homepage.  

CityU’s online bookstore is also discontinuing the option for students to bill their textbooks to the university while they wait for third party funding, for example financial aid.  

These changes are a direct result of the evolving textbook marketplace that offers students options to purchase course resources from a wide range of online vendors.
