Staff members of the department no longer process book orders for faculty and graduate assistants. To place orders for textbooks for your classes, please visit the MSC Bookstore website. Information about this change, including how-to instructions, is listed below.
Click Faculty Resources on the bookstore website homepage. You will be automatically redirected to the FacultyEnlight website.
When you’ve finished making all your selections, click Submit Order.
Why do I need to register and what if I forget my password?
The MSC Bookstore website is set up so that you can be in control of your username and password. Instead of having to call and get someone to reset your passwords, you can simply use the “forgot password” link and update it yourself. You do need to make certain that you are setting your account up as faculty and not guest or anything else. This will allow you access to all of the necessary submission steps.
How do I make corrections to adoptions that I have already submitted?
If you need to make changes after you’ve already submitted your order, you will have to submit a new order to replace the previous one. You can use the order form to add additional books, or replace your entire order. If you do so, make sure to fill out the Comments section of the order form to thoroughly explain the new order and its purpose. Example: if you need to replace all of the texts ordered for your section, fill out the order form again and indicate in the comments box that this order replaces your prior order.
If I have a course with 20 sections, all using the same book, do I need to fill out a separate adoption for each one?
No, you do not have to fill out separate orders for multiple sections if they all use the same texts! Use the comment section for this as well. You can add a comment saying something like, “these books will be used in sections 500-520.” You will need to list the first section and the books, but you do not need to create separate orders for all sections individually if they all use the same texts. For enrollment, you can simply put in the comment section something like, “200 students to be split between the 20 sections, or 10 students per section.”
I am not getting any confirmation emails back, or my adoptions won’t complete the submission process.
The Bookstore reports that some web browsers were not compatible with the new site. However, the English Department has successfully tested the form with modern Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. If you have any questions, contact Sarah Coppedge.
I do not see any course or section numbers listed.
In order to get all adoptions turned in on time, the MSC Bookstore enables the website to receive orders before the university has finalized the schedule of classes. Once the schedule is finalized, the Bookstore updates the site to include correct course numbers. At the beginning of book order submission time, you may notice that there are no course numbers listed in the drop down boxes. However, you can add a course manually and submit the rest of your order as normal. The Bookstore staff will still process this order correctly.
I just submitted an order, but I still do not see it listed on the Bookstore website.
The submission process is not automatic. Please allow 5-10 minutes before receiving your confirmation. The Bookstore staff checks over each order to correct any possible problems before adopting it. Once this is complete, it will be available for viewing online the next day.
I ordered 50 copies and you only ordered 25 books.
Please keep in mind that when the Bookstore asks for the estimated enrollment, they are not asking how many books should be bought, but how many students are estimated to be taking the course. They will then assess their buying needs based on enrollment and past sales. If needed, they can always double check enrollments on the university’s courses website.
