What is Jesuit’s relationship with Follett Virtual Bookstore?
Follett Virtual Bookstore is Jesuit’s official online bookstore. Jesuit has provided them with our master book list to make shopping for textbooks very convenient and reliable. Books are listed by department and class and for many titles, you can choose between new and used copies. Most titles are in-stock and will arrive at your door within a few days depending on shipping options chosen.
Are we required to purchase books from Follett Virtual Bookstore?
You are under no obligation to purchase books from Follett Virtual Bookstore. You can shop from other online vendors like Amazon, Ecampus, and Booksamillion or traditional book stores like Barnes and Noble. However, be advised that you should conduct your search using the ISBNs on your customized book list and select a shipping option that will allow sufficient opportunity for the vendor to deliver the book in time for the beginning of classes. You may also purchase from smaller vendors and individuals at online sites like Amazonmarket.com or Half.com.
May I purchase books from other Jesuit students?
Yes. Many Jesuit families sell or trade books to each other. To help with this process, we have created an application on Moodle (look for “Buy and Sell Textbooks” at the top of the Moodle Homepage.) With this simple database, you can list books you have for sale or search for textbooks others are selling. Be sure to use the ISBN from your customized book list to be certain you are buying the correct textbook.
Can I purchase my textbooks used?
Most of our textbooks can be purchased used. Items marked with a green check-mark on your customized book list are consumable workbooks and cannot be used. Items marked “New” are new to the Jesuit book list or represent an updated edition of a title we have previously used. You may be able to find these books used if purchasing outside the Jesuit community. Always check the ISBNs. When buying used English paperbacks or Foreign Language books, be conscientious about the amount of writing in them. Some instructors perform book checks and disallow books with too many annotations.
Why do I see multiple ISBNs for some books?
For certain titles, multiple books are acceptable. Typically, these have the same content with a different cover or other packaging and is published with a different ISBN. As long as the ISBN on the book matches any one of the acceptable ISBNs, you should not have a problem with the book.
I’m trying to log in and I don’t remember my Student ID? How can I get it?
