I submitted (via Akademos) text book information for my summer course last week, now I see the following message

Note: This term is not currently visible to your students. This link will only display the course page once the adoption period closes. 

Course material missing in the USD Online Bookstore


  • USD Instructors
  • usd.textbookx.com
  • USD Online Bookstore

The portal is not opened to students in the adoption period, it will be opened when all books have been entered so that they do not need to log on multiple times


Note: Deadlines for ordering textbooks will be communicated each semester by email.

  1. First Day Access Materials for all summer courses (even those beginning in May) were due in April, dates will be communicated by email
  2. Students will have access to First Day Access materials through D2L or USD.edu/textbooks at the start of class
  3. Faculty adopting texts for summer courses June 1 and after must submit their materials no later than May 10 and through USD.edu/textbooks
