Online Bookstore

Textbook Options

Textbooks The Clark University Online Bookstore recognizes that textbooks are a significant expense for the University's students.  To help make textbooks more affordable, the Bookstore offers several options.

Purchase New Textbooks

The most expensive option, it often a good choice if you will need the textbook for more than one semester and/or you plan on keeping the book permanently as a reference. 

Purchase Used Textbooks

Used textbooks are available at a significant discount off the cost of a new book.  As used textbooks are subject to limited availability, students are encouraged to shop early if they are planning on buying used textbooks.

Used textbooks are available from the Bookstore directly as well as their third party Marketplace. While Marketplace books can be less expensive, please remember that they ship directly from an individual. The books ordered through the Marketplace usually ship Media Mail and can take up to several weeks to arrive.

Textbook Rental

Rentals are an excellent choice for books you don't intend to keep and need for only one semester. You can highlight and write notes in rented books.


E-books can be a less expensive alternative to a print book. When ordering an e-book keep in mind that you may only have access to the e-book for the semester. In some cases, you will be able to access your notes after you are no longer to access the book itself. You should be able to print approximately quarter of the books pages for easier reading.
