Educational materials, including textbooks, reference and study aids, software, audio, video, and custom course packs, that are to be used in the classroom and sold to students can be requested through the University Book Store. University policy prohibits the sale of any classroom educational materials to students by faculty, staff, or departments. The University Book Store is located in the Iowa Memorial Union and operates a branch store, serving the Health Science campus, in Hospital Ramp #3. Requests for Educational Material(s) are accepted at the store, by telephone, mail, or e-mail, throughout the year, though they generally are due in April for summer and fall semesters and in October for spring semester. The store can provide information on material(s) selection, availability, alternatives, and price, in addition to publisher and desk copy information. The store offers a supplemental educational materials (course pack) service. Course packs can contain: original works, articles, lecture notes, lab manuals, out of print materials, case studies, practice exams, and/or copyrighted (with permission) materials. The store service provides copyright procurement, legal documentation, payment, and materials production assistance in partnership with the University's Copy Centers.
