					How does the NKU Bookstore determine how many books it will be ordering for my class?
Each class, each section of each class, and each book on an order is looked at on an individual basis and reviewed. We look at: Book History – What we ordered and sold in prior semesters. Enrollment History – Has the class historically under enrolled? Over enrolled? Disposability – Is the book a “one use” title? (lab books, custom title, etc.) Duration on Campus – Has the book been in use a long time? If it has, students are likely to trade them, sell them to one another, etc. Book Cost – If it is an abnormally expensive title, students are likely to not buy it or use alternate sources where possible. Book Usage – Is it a required or recommended title? Do students often tell us they “never used the book”? Ability to source – Is the book a custom title or one that students are likely not able to procure from a source other than our store? Popularity of Course/Instructor – Is this a section/course/instructor one that students flock to in comparison to other sections? INFORMATION FROM THE INSTRUCTOR OR THE DEPARTMENT! Have we received any information from the instructor or the department that would lead us to believe we may need more or fewer books? Have we historically sold out of the book in the past? Are there likely to be additional sections using the same book? Are there cancelled sections?
