If you would like to search for an eText, use the eTexts Search Tool - The etexts search tool also allows you to email a publisher and request that an eText be added to the IU system if it does not appear in your search.

Ordering eTexts

For faculty

  1. Log into OneStart.
  2. On the Services tab, click Faculty Systems
  3. Under "Curriculum Management", click eTexts Initiate - Faculty
  4. You can then select the appropriate class, search for a publisher title, and select the eText. To place the order, click Order
  5. If you do not see the eText you wish to adopt for your section, you may request an eText by clicking Email Publisher. The publisher will contact you to let you know whether your eText is available, and if so, will add it to the IU database for ordering.

Note: If you are receiving royalties from the sale of the eText, extra approval from your school or department will be required. Check with your department chair to ensure your department has identified an eText approver.

Timelines

Faculty and Textbook Coordinators will be able to order eTexts until registration begins for the campus, career, and term in which the eText is being offered. Once student registration begins, and up to 60 days prior to the start of the term, eTexts can still be ordered if approval is provided by the applicable department. (Check with your department chair to ensure the department has identified an eText approver.) The department will be required to contact any students who have already enrolled in the section to inform them that an eText fee is being added to the section.
