Spring Updates from the Campus Store
Adoption Deadline for 2022 spring/summer terms is March 1st*, 2021
Please submit course adoptions by following the instructions found on our Faculty and Staff website.
*Adoptions will not be refused after this date. Having course adoptions as soon as possible will allow us time to prepare so that students will be able to access their course materials when courses begin.
- Is the course using OERs?
- Is there no textbook required for the course?
- Do students require iClickers?
- Let us know!
In building the booklist, we want to provide as much information to students as possible. Knowing that there is no purchase required or that resources will be available online will help students in budgeting and planning for the spring/summer term. It also helps prepare our staff to assist students and have answers to their questions.
The 2022 Spring/Summer booklist will be available on April 13th, 2022
Here is what we can do to help:
- Digital Concierge – We work in partnership with instructors to source the digital materials they need for students to be successful in their class. We continue to maximize our digital platform Campus EBookstore Inc (CEI) – with access to over 302,000 digital resources from e-texts to access codes. Leveraging CEI, we can facilitate the distribution of content (whether free or paid) safely and securely through the Campus Store website. For more information and to see the digital catalogue please visit: https://campusebookstore.com
- Providing options for students – It’s our standard practice to provide course materials in all formats, whenever possible – print, digital, packages, loose-leaf etc., so that students can choose the option that best suits their learning style and budget.
- Course Permalink – once the booklist is available online, we will share a unique link with instructors to their course listing. Students can use this link to find their course materials with ease!
- Facilitating Access & Alternative resources – The Campus Store has various ways to help facilitate access to both traditional and non-traditional course materials. Over the past year, we’ve seen a lot of innovation across many courses that required an alternative means to deliver course resources.
- Department purchase of resources on behalf of students – simulations, software, business cases, e-books, and physical books too.
- Required supplies kits – lab kits, field kits etc.
- Leveraging our relationships with publishers to make digital content available when it isn’t available elsewhere.
- Assisting non-traditional publishers in making content available to McMaster students for purchase.
- Inclusive access programs to reduce the cost of materials
- Printed format of OER materials
