Services for Faculty
As a member of NC State’s more than 2300 faculty members, your primary focus is educating the next generation of thinkers and innovators. Our job is to support you in those efforts with quality campus services that are tailored to meet your needs.
NC State Stores’ number one priority is to ensure your students get the best price on course materials and in the format they prefer.
Price comparison tool
One way we do this is through our price comparison tool — a link in MyPack Portal — that enables students to shop our store and other national retailers, then check out from multiple vendors in one place.
A variety of formats
We also work with various partners to offer books in additional formats, like eBooks and rentals, to save students’ money on the course materials you choose for them.
We have partnered with Verba — one of the premier independent adoption collection tools — to connect with you via email throughout the textbook adoption process. You can re-adopt previous books, see the affordability score of adopted books, and research alternate books.
Starting Summer 2017, you can make arrangements for your students to have access to custom digital content through our new Day One Access program. Adopt your books early so we can ensure they are in stock at the best price. Christopher Walsh is your textbook expert. Contact him at 919.515.6111 or email@example.com.
We have in-house and print-on-demand production capabilities through Wolf Xpress, our print and copy shop in Talley Student Union. Get copyright clearance, print your course packs, and bind the course pack all in one location. We currently produce between 25 and 30 course packs per semester, spanning all kinds of disciplines.
Printing, binding and promoting your work
Wolf Xpress is a great resource for your students’ copy and printing needs, such as posters, booklets, displays and reports.
Wolf Xpress can even print their theses and have them bound in leather with gold or white hot-stamp personalization. We have the fastest turnaround times with a centralized, on-campus location.
