Textbook & Textpaks

Where to find textbooks and textpaks for all programs

Textbooks may be obtained in-person from the UC Davis campus bookstore, or they can also be ordered online through the bookstore's website.  All books will be available two to three weeks prior to the first day of the quarter.

Many books are also available online from other sources but make sure you get the correct book along with any other supplemental materials (see the course syllabus).

The UC Davis Bookstore is located at:

Memorial Union
One Shields Ave
Davis, CA 95616

For more information on textbook availability, call 530-752-6846 or email: bookstore@ucdavis.edu.

Textpak Information

Textpaks are obtained through Study.net and/or Harvard Business Publishing and may be downloaded in electronic form one month prior to the first day of classes. Students must be enrolled in the course to access textpaks. Information will be provided through the course Canvas site regarding accessing the Study.net or Harvard materials.

Once logged into the materials site, students may choose to view textpaks online, or print textpaks themselves.

Items available through Study.net can also be purchased, for an extra cost, as a hard copy that will be sent directly to the student via First Class Mail. If a student decides to order a printed textpak, it will be shipped immediately and will be received within 3-4 days of the order date.

Harvard Business Publishing does not offer a hard copy option.

The advantage of using Study.net and Harvard over traditional hard-copy only textpak providers is the convenience of instantaneous access to course readings online and it provides students with the choice to purchase copyright access and print materials themselves, or purchase a hard copy that will be compiled by Study.net.

Once enrolled, students will need to set up a user name and login password to purchase their specific textpak. Once logged in, students may search for their course (on study.net) or use the provided link (on Harvard) and then begin viewing the materials online.

If you are having issues accessing materials, please contact the Project & Instructional Resources staff associated with your program.

Many items are available through the library. Most items will be listed on your course syllabus and sometimes a more extensive list will be posted to Canvas.
