Welcome NYU-Poly students! Finding your textbooks is easy! All you need are your catalog numbers, and we will provide you with a list of books required for your courses.

Step 1 -

Have your catalog numbers ready. Here are sample catalog numbers for Poly courses:

CS 5403 section 1328
CM 1014 section 1689
DM 6153 section 2322

*If your catalog number is only 3 digits, then add a "0" (zero) to the end of it.

Example CS.392 becomes CS.3920

Step 2 -

On our Home page, click on the link - "Textbook Inquiry and Ordering". This link will bring you to a page titled "Find a Book/Inquiry and Ordering"


Step 3 -

Once you're on the "Find a Book/Inquiry and Ordering" page, locate the heading "By Course".

Select the term "Fall 10 ". In the "Department" field enter your department initials, in the "Course ID" field, enter your four digit catalog number and in the "Section #" field, enter your four digit class number, then click on the "Go" button.

This will provide you with a list of the course materials required for the course you have entered. You will need to repeat steps 1 -3 for each course you are taking. From this list you may choose to purchase your books online or shop at our store.
