Printing and mailing services and the UP bookstore are partnering for the purchase of course packs, worksheets, lab manuals, and other class materials. This new process goes into effect for apring term orders and is meant to streamline processes.
Faculty will still send their requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. Printing services will now submit all materials to be purchased for classes through an outside vendor called Xanedu, which will in turn create print-ready documents with a barcode embedded so the bookstore can sell them.
To ensure there are no delays in students receiving class materials, please follow these guidelines:
- For copyrighted content: Submit your request to email@example.com six weeks prior to sale date.
- For non-copyrighted content: Submit your request four weeks prior to sale date.
Once your order is finalized, Xanadu will send it to printing services. Printing services will no longer directly handle copyright clearance authorization or file preparation. When the order is complete, printing services will deliver the order to the bookstore. All class materials will then be picked up by students at the bookstore.
