The COS Bookstores will temporarily be closed March 20 until further notice due to COVID-19. Please see below for Remote Learning Resources.
For students, we will still be able to process weborders, this also includes supplies and scantrons. Because store pickup is unavailable at this time, free shipping is offered on all orders. Do anticipate a longer than normal process time, as factors out of our control can contribute to delays.
Two resources are also being launched as well to help students finish their semester as best as possible:
1. VitalSource, our ebook partner is granting free access to a large portion of their library until May 25th https://get.vitalsource.com/vitalsource-helps Students can log in the app with their student email and access what is available digitally. Not all titles will be there, but this can help MANY students.
2. Bartleby, our online tutoring platform, is offering free tutorial help (10 questions per 30 days) until June 15th. https://www.bartleby.com/questions-and-answers/ask-a-question Students can follow the directions from the website to get started.
For students, the best way to contact us is through the store email, email@example.com or by following the contact page for the bookstore https://cos.bncollege.com/shop/sequoias/page/customer-service
For staff, the SM email or firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org will all be monitored consistently. Along with this, we can handle appointments as needed for faculty/staff during our outside closure, this should obviously be mitigated as best as possible, and for cases where it is necessary.
As always, we are here to help and serve our campus community. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. I still plan on getting orders ready for Summer and Fall books during Spring Break, so keep those book adoptions coming. Thank you!
