Textbooks

holiday hours

The Instructional Resources Service office is where you check out textbooks. Rental textbooks are paid for through a segregated fee included in tuition, so there is no extra cost. UW-Stout has provided a rental system for instructional resources for over 120 years. Students are welcome to pick up their textbooks starting two weeks before classes begin each term.

**All textbooks are due back by the last day of finals. **

Students who cannot make it to campus for any reason may return their textbooks by mail, but are responsible for all shipping costs. 

IRS provides textbooks, CD's, DVD's, article reprints, and many digital resources used for instruction in your courses. We do not provide one-time use materials such as lab manuals and most access code materials. You may purchase these items at the University Bookstore in the Memorial Student Center.
