  1. Treat your books well! Heavy wear or excessive markings can decrease the worth of a book or leave it with no value.
  2. Don’t throw away CDs or other materials that came with the book. Some books cannot be sold without these materials.
  3. Don’t wait too long to sell your books back. The best time to sell you books is during finals week.
  4. Keep your books secure. Thieves target books during buyback. Write your name in pencil on a certain page. If you books are stolen you can alert us to watch for that marking.
  5. Keep in mind that older editions of textbooks already have a lot of used copies in circulation and may be replaced by new editions.
