Second Hand Book Exchange

Second Hand Book Exchange

Due to our lack of space, we are currently offering an online Book Exchange as a means by which our students can sell on unwanted textbooks to other students in Canterbury.

You'll just need to register as a seller and then post your titles for sale. Make sure you give an idea of the general condition, and remember to include the edition details of the book you are listing for sale.

For the thrifty bookworm, you can look for the title you're after by subject (Course) or ISBN.
Use the 13 digit ISBN beginning 978. Avoid using spaces or dashes.

If you find what you're after - contact the seller and agree to meet on campus at a public location such as the library in Augustine House or the Touchdown cafe just outside the bookshop on the North Holmes Road Campus.

We're happy to help with advice if you need any further information.

Happy book-hunting!

In the future, we aim to upgrade this service by offering a buyback points system that will enable the recycling of used textbooks through the bookshop with the support of our lecturers and the Student Union. If you feel strongly that this service should be available and it will be useful to you - please email the bookshop with your name and student ID as we need your support to make this happen!
