Old Editions vs. New Editions

  • Why are old editions NOT cheaper than new editions?
    • Most old editions have no buyback value
    • They are rarely available for each student
    • Prices for old editions may vary on Amazon according to demand
    • There is no guarantee that we will receive the quantity ordered from Amazon
  • What happens to old editions that are no longer adopted?
    • Unsold copies are unreturnable
    • They become deadstock, which have to be:
      • Discarded
      • OR sold off for pennies on the dollar
  • Old editions are difficult to attain 
  • New edition titles can easily be sold by students after use 

Out of Print Titles

  • What are Out of Print Titles?
    • Titles that can no longer be printed by a publisher/distributor
    • Titles that have not gone to a new edition
  • Is it possible to obtain an out-of-print title?
    • We are currently working with a company that prints "out of print titles"
    • Copyrights research takes about two weeks
      • If the copyright is obtainable, the title can be printed
    • Titles are printed & shipped within 1-2 weeks
    • The cost for these titles tend to be less than the original price
  • If you are interested in inquiring about a title, please email us at Textbooks@normandale.edu  

Desk Copies

  • Need to be requested by faculty members through the publisher or publisher representative
