Coursepacks Overview

Coursepacks are a collection of educational material from multiple sources, giving instructors the opportunity to provide customized, low-cost supplements to students.

This means you can include an instructor’s original material, portions of books, articles, images, class schedules, exams, charts, and more.

The Coursepack Office is available to assist instructors in creating truly customized course materials, that meet their specific teaching requirements, in an easy and efficient manner. 

By providing excellent customer service, the Coursepack Office will make sure all of your preparation and hard work is a success. 

For additional information, and to take advantage of this valuable resource, we encourage you to contact the Coursepack Office.

Completed coursepacks will be available for purchase at the AS Bookstore.
