Buying Textbooks

All textbooks are available from the UMaine Machias Online Bookstore.  We offer new, used, rental, and e-books for various courses.  Students must have either a credit card or a book voucher to use this site.

    • Make sure to select the correct section.  For example, if you are enrolled in ENG 101-0003, then make sure to purchase the books for that section of the course.  We may also be offering ENG 101-0002 and ENG 101-0001 and the instructors may be using different books.

**IMPORTANT Things to Remember**

  • Check to see if the books listed are required or only “recommended.”
  • You do not have to buy your books from the UMaine Machias Online Bookstore.  Once you find the ISBN number for each book, you can go to any website to shop for the best deal.  However, your ISBN number must match EXACTLY.  Most books will have two ISBN numbers: an ISBN-10 (10 digits) and an ISBN-13 (13 digits). If you match either one, you should be fine.  This will help to ensure that you get exactly the book that your course instructor wants you to have.
