Ordering Library Resources
At KIMEP University, as at other Western-style institutions of higher education, students are encouraged to rent the course textbooks and other materials they require for study throughout the semester (or acquire their own).
In Fall Semester 2005, the university implemented a textbook rental service to assist students who cannot purchase their required course materials. (see Textbook Rental Center section). The service was developed in response to student and faculty complaints about the lack of available textbooks, and designed to increase the number of textbooks available to students by transferring some of the financial responsibility for textbooks to students.
In the style of Western higher education, you may be accustomed to choosing your own course textbooks. University’s textbook rental service limits your choice in that any title must be assigned at least 4 times in order for the university to recover the title’s purchase cost. This requires you to consult with your departmental colleagues to make a mutually satisfactory choice when you select the primary textbook that will be required reading for any particular course.
All requests for course textbooks are handled by our Library Textbook Rental Center. If you are a new faculty member, please visit the Center to learn about textbook titles already available for the courses you will teach. If you are preparing to teach a new course, please visit the Center to obtain the necessary paperwork to request a new textbook title for the rental service. If you are preparing to teach an existing course, please notify the Center of the textbook title that you would like us to prepare for rental to students: x2539.
