- About Deakin
You can find out what textbooks are prescribed for any unit through the DUSA bookshop website or by going to a bookshop on campus. You can also order your textbooks online or by phone from the DUSA bookshop and have them shipped to you.
The prescribed texts are also listed in your unit guide. This will be available on CloudDeakin one week before the start of trimester. You need to be enrolled to access DSO.
Each unit is usually designed around one or two commercially available textbooks. Most units list both prescribed and recommended textbooks. You are expected to buy the prescribed texts but not the recommended texts.
The library keeps copies of the prescribed texts for student borrowing. There are usually a smaller number of recommended texts available as well. The bookshop stocks the prescribed texts and a limited number of recommended texts. They will order books for you if they are not in stock.
On-campus students have the option of purchasing the Faculty-produced study materials to complement their lectures and tutorials. These are available at cost price through the DUSA bookshop. Off-campus and fee paying students receive these materials in their pre-trimester mail-out. Study guides are also available on CloudDeakin.
The University begins mailing out course materials for off-campus units 6-8 weeks prior to the start of each trimester. If you are an off-campus student and have not received your materials by the start of trimester contact:
