In a move towards textbook affordability, the USM Bookstore will be partnering with a vendor called eCampus to fulfill textbook orders for students beginning with Spring 2019 courses.
Students can order their books through eCampus and will still have the option to rent books or have an ebook format. Students can choose to pick up their order at the Bookstore in Portland, the USM Library at Gorham or Lewiston, or have them shipped to their home. With eCampus, students will be able to sell their books online and will not need to come into the store - though they still have the option.
The textbook staff will be available to assist professors and students with placing orders. Customer service from eCampus will also be available via phone, e-mail, or online web chat.
This is an exciting step towards the progressive delivery of services for our students and our Community. The Bookstore staff will continue to provide exceptional customer service, as well as an increased focus on USM clothing, merchandise, school supplies, Maine Law items, and general reading books.
