SFCC Bookstore Textbook Adoption Due Dates.

In light of the current health crisis, the SFCC Bookstore understands that textbook adoption due dates were difficult to meet. Please submit your textbook requests as soon as possible:  Even if you are not using course materials, you must still report that so the course may be marked as “No Course Materials Required.”

Because the Santa Fe Community College is an institution that receives public funds, we are required by the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) of 2008 to publish course material needs on a singular, HEOA-approved website – in this case, the SFCC Bookstore Website.


Faculty play a large role in ensuring students are able to obtain the textbooks and materials they need at reasonable prices. Santa Fe Community College Bookstore relies on you, the instructors and faculty, to submit textbook adoptions for your courses in a timely fashion each semester. Timely information allows us to source the correct textbooks and obtain an appropriate supply of used textbooks. We all know that more used textbooks are exactly what students want!

On the other hand, delayed textbook information can result in inventory shortages, students unable to obtain required texts and a complete lack of quality used textbooks. In addtion students are unable to sell their textbooks back during finals week if the bookstore has not received information on what will be used the next semester.

Please do your part and submit your textbook adoptions as early as possible each semester. Your students will thank you!

About FCN
The Faculty Center Network is THE resource for faculty to review college-level textbooks and make informed decisions about textbook adoption.
The Faculty Center Network is produced and maintained by MBS, a textbook wholesaler located in Columbia, Missouri. In the past 27 years, MBS has accumulated a vast amount of knowledge and data on textbooks. The result is a robust database of bibliographic information on textbooks.
Inside the Faculty Center Network, users can search or browse over 260,000 textbooks. For each textbook, we have author information and author biographies, cover images, book summaries, tables of contents, sample chapters and prefaces, and links to book supplements available to students.
In addition, we cross-reference textbooks with previous editions, and we offer extensive publisher information. On a title-by-title basis, we provide publisher reviews and links to the publisher's Web site for additional supplemental information. And with each title, we provide publisher contact information for users if they want to request a professional review copy. This information is different from the publisher information database, which includes publisher address, phone number and e-mail addresses for key personnel.
The two key features of the Faculty Center are the subject ranking and book usage data, and the FC Notebook. MBS has taken its demand data from over 3,000 wholesale accounts and devised a way to show how often textbooks are adopted; and rank textbooks by subject category. The FC Notebook is similar to the "Wish List" feature you find at some retail sites. With the Notebook, you can produce an adoptions list to bring to your campus bookstore for ordering purposes. Or, you can create a list of the titles that you would like to request a professional review copy.
