Although the University Book Store carries hundreds of products in stock, we are not able to carry every item available. Those items not stocked can be special ordered, whether it's file folders, pencils, or three-ring binders. For items that can be special ordered you can feel free to browse iteminfo.com. Prices listed on iteminfo are not the same prices that the Book Store will charge. Some are less and some are more depending on the item. For price quotes please contact one of the emails or phone numbers listed below.
Please Note: for oversize special order items (chair mats, large whiteboards or corkboards, furniture, etc) there is a $25.00 service fee for shipping of the item. If an oversize item needs to be returned there will be either a $25.00 OR 15% restocking fee, whichever is larger.
If you are a campus department, fill out a Book Store Charge Form and fax it to the store at 294.5669.
