Student Process for Acquiring Course Materials

All Course Materials requirements for all the courses you are registered to attend should be visible by logging into mesAmis and clicking on MyBooks.

In MyBooks, you may get a list of books with similar titles as shown below:

You only need ONE of these. If you note in this example above, they are 3 format options for the same title. One is full digital, one is a loose leaf version (you add it to a binder) with code and one is a full hard cover version with code.

From this MyBook list, you can search out all required textbooks and e-codes or digital access online at  Click on the Academics header and a drop down list will show you access to Textbooks or Digital Access.

You will complete two different shopping transactions for your textbooks and digital access.  Please, complete one before switching to the other.  Upon completion of your digital purchases, you will have the information you require to immediately have access to the purchased digital components.  You can search the digital components by course in the CEI website page.  There could be options for your particular course (IE code only or e-text only or a combined package), please, read carefully to make sure you are getting what you want.

Textbooks are separated by department of study for easy selection.  You can also search by ISBN and title.  At the checkout, please, select LOCAL PICK-UP to pick-up on campus in the MacKay Room.  Upon completion of your order for textbooks, you must allow at least 72 hours for pick up.  The earliest possible pick up day will be January 11th 2021 for all orders placed before January 4th 2021.  All other orders will follow the rule for 72 hours (3 business days) pick-up.  Any textbooks not yet available will stay on back order to be picked up at a later time.  If you choose to have your items shipped to you, they will be shipped.

The pick-up location will be at the MacKay Room in Bloomfield Centre, 3rd floor. You will be provided with an order number and a separate mass communication will be sent concerning pick up times and days. Please be sure to bring your order number and STFX Student ID with you for pick up.  All of this is done to manage contact and protect you (our students) and our staff from the spread of Covid-19.  Please, follow the signage and the arrows for entry and exit of the MacKay room pick up area.

Please watch the videos below for a walkthrough on how to order your textbooks online.
