Textbooks

Where do I find the textbooks location?

End of Semester Textbook Buyback - Cash for Books!

The best time of the year to sell back your textbooks is at the end of the semester. This is when you can get the most value for your books. 

  • Our #1 goal is to purchase your textbooks for 50% of the price you paid for them at the beginning of the semester. If your instructor has told us that they will be using the same material for the following semester, we generally pay half of the College Book Stores selling price.
  • Immediate cash (No waiting for a check or a deposit)
  • No need to pay for shipping costs
  • No appointment necessary
  • Lower your future textbook costs - By selling your textbooks to us you will help other SUNY Oswego students and you by reducing textbook costs as we can provide a larger selection of used textbooks for the following semester

Through our online order system, you are able to lookup textbooks by department / course / section. Dare to Compare!
