Textbook Information for Spring 2021 semester is now available at Courses are continually being added, so check back if you do not see textbook information for your course.


Auburn University Bookstore will continue its partnership with Barnes & Noble Collegiate Services to fulfill textbook purchases and rentals for the spring 2021 semester. We have entered into this partnership to guarantee that students will have access to course materials no matter how the situation may develop with COVID-19.

Students should consider shipping times when ordering textbooks and order as early as possible. Please provide the address (home, campus, or apartment) to the location you want the books shipped.  Textbooks will not be available in the Bookstore and must be ordered online (with the exception of contract billing programs, see below).
