No Materials to Adopt/No Textbook Required

Using Follett Discover, individuals can indicate "No Materials to Adopt" for their course(s). ITS programming (in place soon) will bring this selection over to MAUI, updating the course section and bringing the section into compliance. 

Going forward, we recommend providing "No Materials to Adopt" information to the bookstore instead of entering it into MAUI as "No Textbooks Required." Information will flow from Follett to MAUI, but not from MAUI to Follett. Since the Iowa Hawk Shop/University Bookstore now tracks textbook/resource compliance it is most efficient to provide the information at the time the order is placed. 

Please update your processes for future courses where a textbook/resource will not be needed. You need not update information previously entered in MAUI.

For information on entering "No Textbooks Required" in MAUI please visit the Textbook and Resource Management page on the MAUI Help Site.

Please Note: 0IND (Independent Study) courses are excluded from having to enter "no textbooks required."

If a textbook order comes in after "no textbook required" is indicated, the textbook information will overlay the previous entry and will not require the departmental administrator to make any changes in MAUI. 

Extenuating Circumstance

If there is an extenuating circumstance which prevents textbooks from being entered, an extenuating circumstance should be indicated.  Again, action needs to be taken by a departmental administrator to indicate in MAUI that there are extenuating circumstances for the course section. Instructors do not have access to make these changes in MAUI.

Extenuating Circumstance Available:

  • Instructor Not Assigned
  • Course Under Development
  • Materials Not Available

If a textbook order comes in after  "extenuating circumstance" is indicated, the textbook information will overlay the previous entry and will not require the departmental administrator to make any changes in MAUI.
