You have options when purchasing textbooks. Choose from:

COMPARE AND SAVE

Get the best price for your textbooks by using our "Dare to Compare" price comparison tool. You can order directly from us or any of the online retailers listed, such as Amazon, Chegg, and many others. You can try out our comparison tool on our website.

SELL YOUR TEXTBOOKS

The best time to sell your textbooks is right after classes have ended and during finals week each semester. The buyback value of your textbook is higher during this time, because the Bookstore is buying textbooks for the upcoming semester. Although the UNM Bookstore does conduct daily buyback, you will usually receive more for your textbooks during Buyback at the end of the semester. Also, don’t forget your Lobo ID at buyback! It is required to sell back your textbooks. You can read more out textbook buyback on our buyback page.
