You are receiving the following email as textbooks and/or resources have not been submitted for Spring 2018 courses:

If you or the instructor have placed a textbook or resource order with the bookstore for these courses and feel that this message was sent in error, please contact the bookstore. The contact information is listed below.

The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) requires that book titles, ISBN numbers and prices of required and recommended books and other materials for any course are included on the institution's electronic schedule of courses in time for student registration.

The Office of the Provost encourages instructors to place their textbook order by Early Registration with either the Iowa Hawk Shop/University Bookstore, Iowa Book, Prairie Lights, or the ISBA Law Bookstore as the result of an electronic data upload process. When the departmental representative places an order with the chosen location, a data feed of required textbook details including the ISBN will be returned by direct feed into MAUI Offerings Planner. If textbook orders are placed with multiple book stores, all data files will be uploaded to MAUI and duplicate textbook line items will be removed. Once the data feed has been returned to MAUI, a departmental representative will be able to choose which line items are being displayed in MyUI and determine if the textbook is required, recommended, or optional.

All textbook and resource orders should be finalized in MAUI by Early Registration, but in no event later than four weeks prior to the start of the semester in which the textbook is to be used by students. If textbook or resource orders cannot be placed by this time, departmental representatives now have the option to indicate their extenuating circumstances in MAUI. These options include: instructor not assigned, course under development, or materials not available.
