Shop for Textbooks

Merriman Bookstore has partnered with MBS Direct, a nationwide vendor for online textbook rental and purchases, beginning with the Fall 2017 semester! Go to allegheny.edu/buybooks to get started. Simply order all of your textbooks online and have them shipped to the College’s Post Office or another address.

That’s right – no muss, no fuss! Place your order conveniently online and you’ll receive two emails: one confirming your order, and one to let you know that your order has shipped. You’ll be able to get shipping information, track textbook orders, sell back textbooks, and more without waiting in line!

The Merriman Bookstore will not stock textbooks anymore. All textbooks must be ordered online.

Important: course packs will continue to be sold through the Merriman Bookstore. Just come in through our regular entrance on Main Street in the Campus Center (not the third-floor window used in prior years) and ask the cashier if you don’t see the course packs.

Course packs will not be available online. However, they will be listed (along with books being used) if your faculty member has ordered one. When you see a price for the course pack, that means it’s available for purchase at the cash register
