Bookstore Module

To use the Blackboard Bookstore or Blackboard Bookshelf, you will be asked to agree to the Terms of Service. You will also be asked to create a Blackboard Store login during the checkout process. This lets you check your order status, track your order, and quickly sell books back.

If you have not yet been given a Blackboard Learn account, you can still order from the Blackboard Store, enabling you to purchase textbooks and materials before the start of class. This ability is set up by your institution. Once the Blackboard Bookstore has been notified that you are enrolled in a course, you will receive an email from the Blackboard Store with a direct link to the Blackboard Store.

  1. Once you are at the Blackboard Store, you have the option to either login with (a) an existing Blackboard Learn account, (b) an existing Blackboard Store account, or (c) create a Blackboard Store account.

  5. Since most institutions restrict access to Blackboard courses prior to the start of class this new feature will allow you to be prepared for the start of class regardless of having to access to your course or having a Blackboard account.
