Welcome to the WIU Bookstore textbook ordering site! 

We have a few tips that will make ordering your textbooks much easier:

  • If you are a faculty member trying to adopt books for your class, please click on "Faculty Adoptions" to the left.
  • If you are a student trying to place an order for textbooks, click on  "Course Materials" to the left.          
  • Make sure you have your  STARS schedule in front of you when choosing your textbooks. Your STARS schedule will include the section number for each of your classes. When you create a customer profile you will be asked to enter shipping information.  You will need to complete this part of your profile even if your order is for store pickup.
  • Your order total will be calculated using the "new" or "used" preferences you chose but this is not a "real-time" inventory so quantities are not guaranteed.  If you checked "used preferred" and used is available your order total will be less than what is listed on the order confirmation. If you checked "used preferred" but no used copies are available a new copy will be picked.  If you checked "used only" and no used copies are available then the title will be cancelled from the order.  This will also alter the final dollar total of your order.
