The festive season is rapidly approaching! But it's not too late to submit your Winter 2023 course materials submissions!
Submissions can be made via the BookStore's SharePoint web portal: https://bit.ly/3EZitaV . You can also submit via email, to the designated Course Materials buyer for your department. For email addresses please click on the image below:
We ask that you submit your course materials adoptions as soon as possible, to ensure materials are available on or before the start of Winter term (Monday January 9th), as submissions will not be processed during the holiday closure.
A reminder that course materials can include much more than textbooks: calculators, lab coats, safety equipment, digital simulations, and other supplies can and should be included in your adoptions when such items are required by your students. Feel free to contact your designated Course Materials buyer to discuss details.
We look forward to working with you to make the Winter 2023 term a great one for our University of Manitoba students!
