Mission Statement

The mission of the Textbook Center is to aid students in having the best possible education by furnishing textbooks to them in a cost-efficient manner. This will give students an affordable avenue of textbook acquisition for their education at UW-Platteville.

Background

The University of Wisconsin-Platteville was founded in 1866 as the State Normal School. Classes began on October 9, 1866. Textbooks were furnished to students for $1.00 to $1.50 per term. The income derived from rentals and sales was to be sufficient to keep the textbook library supplied and to pay the salaries of the textbook librarians. Books were to be carefully selected by faculty.

Textbook Rentals

The students, through Segregated Fees Part B, support the Textbook Center in its entirety. Instructors and/or departments select the textbooks to be used. The Textbook Center orders books as requested by department chairs and college deans. Instructors and departments are encouraged to remember that supplementary and reference texts can be ordered through the Follett University Store for purchase by students and/or ordered through Karrmann Library and placed in their Reserve Collection. Rental fees are re- evaluated every year. The current fee per semester: $9.17 per credit (1-11 credits); $110.00 maximum (12 credits and up).

All currently registered undergraduate students may use books from the Textbook Center. Books are not checked out to students for courses being taken through the Office of Professional Program Support, Graduate Programs, and the Education Abroad Program since textbook rental fees are not paid for those courses.

All textbooks, clickers, CDs, etc. are due back to the Textbook Center by the last day of finals at 5:30 p.m. The Drop Box is also open after hours and during weekends for returns.
