One Book, Many Options

The Bowdoin Bookstore researches and provides access to a variety of options for obtaining both required and recommended course materials. This allows students to prioritize selections based on their personal need for convenience, quality and type of materials, and cost.

The Bowdoin Bookstore Textbook Center takes a “One Book-Many Options” approach providing up-to-date services including:

Michael Tucker, Textbook Center Manager and Course Materials Specialist, communicates closely with faculty to understand course needs and works with multiple national and international publishers and distributors to source appropriate materials that are competitively priced. He welcomes the opportunity to assist faculty and students to obtain the materials they require.
