CCNY is happy to announce the launch of a new online bookstore for all textbooks and course materials for Summer and Fall 2017.

Selecting and ordering books will be done completely online and students will have their course materials shipped to them individually either to their homes or to a secure location on campus. After a thorough review, Akademos was selected as our exclusive vendor for these services. Akademos currently serves Queens, John Jay, and Medgar Evers, as well as the CUNY School of Law, and is coming to other CUNY colleges.

Akademos/CCNYbooks.com – which will use your CUNYfirst login – was chosen because:

  • It provides our students with the best options for saving money on their books,
  • It offers the widest range of different formats (new, used books, e-books and rentals),
  • Students will be able to get the books they need at the lowest price available, and have access to year-round buy back.

Stay tuned for additional information about ordering your books for summer and fall.

NOTE: Follett, our on-campus bookstore, will close on June 16. No books for the summer or fall will be available through Follett, but merchandise will continue to be available through that date.

FACULTY AND STAFF

CCNY's new virtual bookstore, CCNYbooks.com, is now available and equipped to supply all course book selections for all Summer Sessions as well as for the Fall Semester. The online bookstore is proven to offer students substantial savings and to give faculty an intuitive shopping-cart interface, with more options and support services.

Faculty can now submit book information by logging into CCNYbooks.com with their CUNYfirst credentials, accessing their personalized course list, and entering their books and materials. Here is a brief guide to assist with this process. Please click on a short video to preview the CCNYbooks.com online process.

There will be half-hour information sessions to inform faculty of the new system, with more training dates coming soon at the Tech Center, room STC 3 (ground floor of the NAC, past the escalator and to the left) at the times listed below. Faculty members should feel free to drop in at their convenience.

The deadline for ordering books for Summer and Fall 2017 is April 13th. The CUNYfirst option for ordering books will also remain open during this period. After April 13th, CCNY will use CCNYbooks.com exclusively. Entering book and material selections in CCNYbooks.com will populate courses on CUNYfirst within 2 days. (If faculty members have already entered selections into CUNYfirst, there is no need to reenter books into the new system.)

If faculty members are not formally assigned to a course yet in CUNYfirst, their courses may not appear when they login to the online bookstore. If for some reason they are unable to login to the bookstore, or if they have any issues adding book adoption to the site, please email your course and text information to CCNYbooks@akademos.com for processing and confirmation. Akadémos is the company providing the technology, experience, and support for our CCNYbooks.com online bookstore. Their representatives are local and happy to work with the CCNY community to ensure the easiest transition.
