Shop By Author

Organizing course materials and increasing commission dollars


Shop By Author leverages our Follett Discover Access technology. Your students can easily access materials by author and make one pass through the course materials aisle — or access all the materials they need in one online shopping list.


Organizing course materials department by author (instead of division, department, course or section) not only makes it easier for your students to find what they need, but is also a proven way to increase text sales and boost earned loyalty. This equals more commission dollars for your campus, so it’s a win-win for everyone.


Your students can search by author’s last name instead of hunting for the right division, department, course and section


All affordability options are consolidated to provide an improved shopping experience with less “out of stocks”


The square footage of course materials departments is reduced by 25–30%, so you can focus on expanding your community space, coffee kiosks, tech try-it tables, and more


From custom marketing signage, program-specific shelf tags and wayfinding signage email marketing campaigns, we offer support you can count on

Key Benefits

  • Makes it easier for your students to find what they need
  • Produces earned loyalty for your store
  • Contributes to student preparedness
  • Offers additional affordability option exposure
