Bond University Bookshop

Although Bond University does not have a bookshop on campus, the University is working with Booktopia, an established Australian online bookshop, to provide the opportunity for students to purchase printed textbooks online and have them delivered to their home or to an Australia Post parcel locker.

Students wishing to purchase their textbooks can use the Booktopia Textbook Finder to find their prescribed textbooks and place an order.

You can purchase textbooks from other bookshops and suppliers, secondhand, or from any other method. Please ensure you are purchasing the right book and correct edition. Check-in your subject outline if you are unsure, or contact your lecturer or the Library.

The library provides access to over 125,000 print books and 200,000 ebooks supporting all areas of study and research at Bond University.

Where to find books in the library

Books are shelved according to the Library of Congress Classification in the Main Library and the Moys classification scheme in the Law Library.  

To find a book on the shelf, take note of its location and shelf number in Library Search. The shelf number will look something like this: RC123.654. Make your way to that shelf location in the library to find your book. Use the Map it button in Library Search to display a floor plan indicating the row of shelving.
