Direct any textbook questions to Teresa Young at 214-324-3607 x 4128 or email email@example.com
The BL VIRTUAL BOOKSTORE for SUMMER READING and SUMMER SCHOOL will open May 1, 2016.
NOTICE: Digital content is non-transferrable and non-refundable after code is activated. Please refer to the return policy for eContect, eBooks or eChapters found in the Virtual Bookstore.
ATTENTION: Important digital access information! Publishers do not deliver digital access in the same manner. There are 4 ways you may receive your digital access. 1.) You will get an email with an access code and instructions to activate that code. 2.) You will receive the code by postal service (snail mail). 3.) You will show a receipt to your instructor to receive your access code. Or 4.) Mrs. Terry Young will create and activate your access code and you will receive this information through your instructor. Please do not assume you will receive your code via email. Publishers do not operate universally when it comes to their digital content.
Also, for future reference, I would like to encourage purchasing your textbooks/ebooks during the free shipping week of July 15th. This gives ample time to restock inventory when quantities are low. There seems to be a trend of waiting until the week before or the week school starts to place orders. This puts those students at a disadvantage in class when they do not have the necessary materials.
Both the STORE and the LIST should be compared for a comprehensive view of materials required. Not all materials are on one site. For instance, not all digital options are listed on the Booklist, nor is the calculator required for Math listed in the Virtual Bookstore.
Remember, the textbook format is your option. If a digital ebook is listed in the Virtual Bookstore, you have the option of the hardcover textbook OR the digital ebook. Both are not required, unless sold in a ‘bundle’ or ‘print combo’. Note that some classes will require a digital site for homework, activities, or quizzes. This is in addition to the text (whether in hardcover or ebook format) and is the equivalent of a workbook.
