Campus Publications

There are three different types of campus publications supported by the bookstore to meet varying academic needs: Departmental publications, coursepacks and coupons. Hopefully the following information can help you decide which option will best meet the needs of your class.

Departmental Publication: A departmental publication is generated by the department - for example a workbook created by the professor, or the Health Dynamics text authored collectively by the Kinesiology faculty. Departmental publications have no material that needs copyright permission filed and all of the production is overseen and paid for by the department.
Coursepacks: If the material you wish to use includes a substantial amount of copyrighted material such as book selections, website material or journal essays and articles, then you need to create a coursepack. The bookstore offers the service of filing for permission and also handles most of the production details.
Coupons: Coupons are the most flexible option we offer. Faculty use coupons, bought by the students at the same time as their textbooks, to cover lab fees, supplies to be handed out in class, audio-visual resource costs and copying costs for incidental handouts.

If you are uncertain of which option works best for your class or have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to contact Craig Thelen, our Textbook Manager, at or extension x7381.
