Used Book Informarion for Faculty

Used Books: Value for Your Students

The Campus Store endeavours to buy and sell as many used books as possible, in order to provide the lowest possible book prices for students.

Instructors can help us obtain used books by providing Textbook Adoption information as early as possible. Used books are often hard to locate, so the earlier we start looking, the more we will have available for students.

We obtain used books from three sources:

  1. Directly from VIU students (paying 50% of the current retail price).
  2. From students at other universities via a Canadian buying network.
  3. From used book wholesale companies.

Thanks for helping your students by providing textbook adoption information as early as possible.
