When I look at the eBook option for an item on the website, it says 180 days, what does that mean?
Our digital items have a limited access duration. That duration begins when you activate the Access Code for the item, which is sent to you through email after purchase. The duration is typically set at 180 days, the length of a semester, however a few items may have a longer access duration shown.
I’m an instructor looking to get a review copy, a desk copy, or a preview of an item.
For instructor copies, a request can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you in touch with the appropriate Sales Representative.
I’m purchasing a book for a course, and I don’t have an ISBN number. How can I be sure I’m purchasing the right book?
The title of the book can be a good way to tell but isn’t always reliable. The book’s edition number and author also can be good to check. The best way to ensure you’re purchasing the correct item is to check with your instructor and ask for an ISBN number. If you get in touch with our support team we can offer suggestions for what we think it is based on the information you provide. However, without an ISBN number we aren’t able to ask you to purchase something that might not be right.
What is an ISBN Number? Where can I find it?
An ISBN Number is 13-digit number which typically begins with 9 7 8. It is used as the best method for identifying a book or another item. When working with you regarding one of our items, we often ask for an ISBN number because many of our items have similar titles and we want to be sure we’re getting you the information for the correct item. The ISBN number is most often located near the barcode or on the inside cover of a book
The store page has a print version and an eBook version, but the ISBN my instructor gave only matches one of the versions. Is the other still okay to buy?
Yes. Different versions of an item need to have different ISBN numbers but typically the only difference is the format. The content will be the same.
I’m not sure what book I need to buy
Check the ISBN number. It will be a 13 digit number beginning with 978. On the item page in our store, that be found on the right side. That will identify the correct book better than anything else. If you don’t have one, check with your instructor or check the course syllabus.
I was charged twice for my order.
