Product Description: There are important differences between the manner in which a college, university or other academic institution conducts its operations and the manner in which a corporation conducts its business. The entire purpose of operations, the presence of large numbers of students, the style of management, and other factors are all greatly different between an academic institution and a typical business. Until now these differences have not been particularly well addressed in literature for emergency plans. A college or university constitutes a more or less ?complete community? and, although subordinate to government entities, the institution is often responsible for general security, fulltime residents, etc. ? factors that go beyond the scope of most corporate plans.A Complete College or University PlanColleges and universities need to develop a complete scope of plans to address multiple purposes and the needs of a wide variety of users. We believe that the following specific plans are needed:?Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) ? This is the central or overarching plan for the College or University. In addition to defining the overall actions of the University during an emergency, the primary objective of the COOP is to maintain or rapidly restore normal academic and research operations.'Crisis Management Protocols Plan ? This Plan provides the University Incident Commander and the Emergency Response Team with emergency instructions to be executed during specific disaster events. The primary purpose of the Crisis Management Protocols Plan is the direction of University resources and life safety.oEmergency Response Plan for Faculty & Staff ? This Plan provides all University employees with emergency instructions to be executed during specific disaster events. Individuals who may have received only basic emergency response training use this plan during emergency situations. As such this plan focuses on basic first responder steps. The primary purpose of the Plan is life safety.oEmergency Procedures for Students ? This manual provides basic emergency information to students ? primarily Shelter-in-Place and Facility Evacuation procedures. The primary purpose of the manual is life safety?Organizational Unit Plans ? Each Organizational Unit (the various departments, organizational groups, divisions or other defined infrastructure entities of the College or University) with important disaster preparation and/or response assignments needs to developed a Plan. This Plan defines the Unit's actions before, during and after a disaster event.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
