Book Purchasing & Selling

If you've previously experienced an error message when trying to use 'Shop by Schedule' on our MBS Mercy Bookstore, you're now able to use your daughter's full email address that will bring up the books she'll need to purchase for her 2017-2018 School Year at Mercy. Please see the attached flyer from MBS and take advantage of free shipping with orders over $99 through Friday, August 18th.
Once you view your daughter's course schedule, you'll notice there is a variety of purchasing options [new, used, digital, iBook, VitalSource eBook, Rental and Marketplace]. Some student's prefer to work from a digital book on their iPad during their school day [iBook and/or VitalSource eBook] and work from a book at home. Unless there's a Teacher's note highlighted in gray, please discuss which book option would be best for your daughter. Please note: any digital content purchased through MBS will populate her Digital Content Shelf (view this video for more information).
Please refer to this step by step guide when making your daughter's book purchases which includes Customer Service contact info for any questions you might have.
