Textbook Adoption Form

Textbook Adoption Form

Welcome to the Vic Books textbook ordering section.

Please give us as much information as you can to help us determine your requirements. With regards to enrolment, we know this can be a shot in the dark but we need whatever information you can give us. Textbook ordering is based on historic sales patterns so it is important to let us know if you are anticipating any significant change on the previous year’s enrolment e.g. due to an increase in the enrolment cap.

We make a distinction between Prescribed Texts and Recommending Readings. A Prescribed Text is a book that you expect the class to buy, read and treasure because you use it extensively in the course. A Recommended Text is a good read but is basically not compulsory.

It is essential that we are made aware if you will be promoting digital options of the text you are prescribing as this will impact on the sales of print copies through the bookshop.

If you need desk or inspection copies of texts you need to request these from the publisher as they prefer to send them directly to academics. Be sure to make your requests in plenty of time as there can be lead times of weeks or even months. We can help with contact details if necessary.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch if there is anything else we can help with. You can email us here.

If the order you place using the online form is successful you will receive an automatic email response. If you are unsure if your order has gone through you can call 04 280 6202 or email us.
