- How do I submit a textbook adoption?

However you choose to submit, please include the following information:
- Name, email & extension

- Textbook Title & Edition
- Textbook Author
- ISBN Number
- Quantity of Books Required
- Am I entitled to any discounts at the Bookstore?
All Carleton faculty and staff get a 10% discount off clothing and giftware at the Bookstore!
- When should I submit my textbook adoption request?
In short, the sooner the better!
Ideally we’d like to receive adoption requests 4 months prior to the course starting, but we understand often this can’t happen for a variety of reasons. So, the sooner you send us your request, the sooner we can start ordering books!
One benefit of sending us your adoption request early is it increases our chances of getting used copies of the book. In certain cases we’re able to request used textbooks from other partner bookstores or from our central warehouses, but those are only offered on a first come, first serve basis to all our partner stores, so the early bird gets the used textbook, so to speak.
