Course Material & Logistical Resources
Please provide the following information for book orders:
- year edition
- ISBN. Please make sure the 13-digit ISBN international standard book number is included as it is now a necessary part of our book orders. The bookstore will not accept orders without it.
Ensure the books on the requisition are listed in priority order (required, recommended, study aid). The books are ordered with emphasis on the first request.
Please note that only a limited number of "recommended texts" are ordered. The bookstore will order the number of required texts equal to the maximum enrollment in your course. It is the responsibility of the instructor to order the required number of desk copies directly from the publisher. Make your request to the publisher in writing on university letterhead, stating the course number and the maximum enrollment expected.
Please provide information for your book orders to Ryan Ostonal (email@example.com) at least six weeks before the start of the semester.
If at all possible, when choosing your texts, check with the publisher to ensure the texts you are using are still in print. This will alleviate problems and last minute substitutions. Please telephone the SFU bookstore (778.782.3656 ) for information or visit the list of publisher representatives on the Bookstore website.
Library reserves are an excellent means of providing students with materials, both articles and books. Please fill out the requisition for reserve books, paying special attention to the Loan Period - 2 hours, 4 hours, 24 hours, or 3 days. The Library requires the same basic information as the bookstore: author, title, ISBN numbers, publisher, etc.
For more information on requesting reserves, visit: https://www.lib.sfu.ca/borrow/request-materials/requesting-reserves
Please note that it is the responsibility of the instructor to order the required number of desk copies directly from the publisher.
Custom Courseware is printed material written, or specifically chosen, by faculty members for use in an SFU course and produced "in-house" by the bookstore. It may contain photocopies of chapters of textbooks, case studies, articles from journals, etc.
For information contact the Custom Courseware Department at 778-782-5533 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional information can be found on the Document Solutions website: https://pds.docsol.sfu.ca/print/
The bookstore will obtain copyright authorization for you, then print and bind copies to sell to your students at cost. Courseware can be in addition or an alternative to textbooks. We encourage you to consider this option.
Due to substantial increases in costs for course duplicating, and a reduction in the faculty budget, only the first 30 pages of photocopied material are free for students for each course. Any photocopies over 30 will be charged to students, at 10 cents per page. Instructors are responsible for ensuring that these charges are collected and submitted to Undergraduate Programs.
Photocopiers on campus have a scanning function for transmitting documents as electronic files. Pdf, Tiff, and Xps files can be sent from photocopiers to your email address.
Information on Canadian copyright law and on permitted use of copyright materials at Simon Fraser University can be found online: http://www.lib.sfu.ca/help/academic-integrity/copyright/instructors
By using custom courseware, electronic files and/or a course website (i.e. Canvas), you can alleviate the need for collecting money from your students for photocopied material.
You will be given access to a photocopier. This is for the odd copies that you might need to make.
The following applies to current faculty members. Information regarding Sessional Instructor, Distance Education Course Supervisor, TAs, TMs access will be emailed later.
Starting August 2018, new RICOH photocopiers require security key fob with SFU Print (printing/scanning/copying) or SFU ID or a self-generated pin number with SFU Print.
For printer setup, you can come visit the tech staff in the Research Hub (EDB 8513). Please make sure you have plenty of time for this set up as it may take at least 10-15 minutes. There are also online instructions here: https://www.sfu.ca/itservices/technical/sfu-print/how-to-guides.html)
