- Bring us your whole shopping list as early as possible, to take advantage of the widest selection of used books.
- Don't forget to grab a basket when you enter the store. Some of those textbooks are heavy!
- Forgot your booklist?
- We have two terminals in the textbook department where you can print a copy; you just need your student number and PIN.
- OR... Download the UManitoba mobile app for iOS and Android to access your booklist on your smartphone or tablet: (http://umanitoba.ca/admin/mco/mobileapps.html).
- Visit our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter for textbook arrival updates and Buyback titles.

- Need a lock? Safety glasses? Calculator? Scalp Massager? The Bookstore has all your needs, and helpful staff will show you where to find it.
- All textbooks are shelved by Department or Faculty, and then alphabetically by author last name (not you class instructor's name!)
- In the case of multiple authors, refer to the author listed first on your booklist.
- Always keep your sales receipt until you're sure you don't need to return any of your textbooks.
- Always watch for used textbook options
- They are shelved next to the new copies
- They are 25% off, and you pay no tax!
- Be sure to check out our textbook price comparison signage throughout the store.
- If we're out of stock, watch for in-department signage with information on book reorders and estimated arrival information - or speak with floor staff for more information.
