TEXTBOOK SERVICE FOR STUDENTS


 

Textbook Distribution

XJTLU Library distributes the textbooks to students three calendar days before new semester begins (See University Communication Notice) at Textbook Service Center. There are two categories of textbooks for students to collect: Mandatory Textbook and Optional Textbook.
  1. For Mandatory Textbook, each student enrolled in the module will be provided with a copy. Library TPD orders Mandatory Textbook according to the estimated number of enrollment in a module provided by Registry.
  2. For Optional Textbook, students are free to make buying decisions on a ‘First Come, First Served’ basis. It is not guaranteed that each student can have one copy in hand.
  3. Students should collect textbooks within three days of the first teaching day in each semester. Students who missed the centralized distribution can collect textbooks in Textbook Service Center during opening hours before WEEK 10.
  4. Returning service is ONLY eligible for students who have changed modules/programs within one month after new semester begins. Any other return requests will not be accepted. Students shall provide their updated timetable and return brand new textbooks to Textbook Service Center.
  5. Students shall check the latest updated textbook master list on library website if needed.
