Textbook Selection

Textbooks should be evaluated carefully before adoption with consideration of affordability and accessibility. Before the adoption is finalized, each department will maintain written or electronic records to attest that all text materials will be used by the student and that affordable alternatives were considered. When possible, instructors will supply desk copies to the Learning Resource Center’s Reserve Desk to be accessible to those students unable to purchase the appropriate textbook(s) and/or supplemental material(s). Refer to the Textbook Adoption and Affordability Policy No. 4.01 (http://inside.cf.edu/manuals/chapter_4.pdf) and Textbook Adoption Procedures and Guidelines and Textbook Assistance for Financially Challenged Students http://www.cf.edu/procedures.
