How to Order Textbooks

MBS Direct has partnered with Mount Union to provide a customized online bookstore. This bookstore is built around a course-driven system that ensures you order and receive the right book right on time. Textbooks and course materials are shipped from a state-of-the-art warehouse that is fully operational 24 hours a day, five days a week.

As you purchase your course materials, keep your eyes open for guaranteed buyback titles. When you select these in-demand items you will see the minimum amount you can expect when you sell your books back to MBS Direct.
