Some of the links provided will require you to verify who you are by logging in with your TRACKS user name and password or will require you to send a copy of your academic id to the vendor before your item will be shipped to you. Please read all information very carefully before you proceed the first time through. It will save you a lot of time later in the purchasing process.

Some sites will have tabs for students and others for faculty/staff. Choose the tab that corresponds to you and only work within that area. If you cross tabs and add items in your cart that require a staff login but you are a student, you will not be able to complete the checkout process.
