Before You Start

You will need your course schedule to properly find your textbooks. All textbooks are organized by department and course code. Find your course schedule on RAMSS.

Once you have your course schedule then you can easily find your books using the Booklist.

Selecting Your Books

Step 1: In your browser go to the bookstore website

Step 2: Click on “Textbooks” to open up the “Course Material” dropdown menu and then click on “Booklist”



Step 3: Use the tables under “Find Your Courses” and choose the current term.


Step 4: Select the Department, Course and Section. All of this information can be found on your course outline or student schedule which you can access through RAMSS.


Step 5: Click on the correct Section so that the course appears in the Selected Courses listing. If you don’t want that course you can remove it by clicking on the red button. Click the blue “Choose Books” button at the bottom.

If your course and section number is not listed then the best thing to do is attend class for more information. It may be that your professor is not using a textbook or your professor is using a textbook but they still have to order it with the Bookstore.



Step 6: Your booklist is generated. On the Courses page you will to see the available textbook(s) for that course. The price for the new and used version of the textbook will be shown in the dropdown next to each textbook.


If a version is not available then the words “Out of Stock” will be shown and its respective selection button will be greyed out.

It’s important to note that there may be Optional material on your booklist. Optional materials are assigned by the instructor but are not mandatory for the course. Required materials are mandatory.


Step 7: To add a textbook to your Shopping Cart select the version of it you would like to purchase from the dropdown and then click the “Select Item” button. The number of items in your shopping cart will be updated in the shopping cart icon located in the top right corner of the webpage.
