What is the Follett ACCESS textbook program?
Follett ACCESS is a partnership between UNO and the UNO Bookstore that allows you to rent or purchase textbooks at a reduced cost. The charge is posted directly to your UNO Tuition and Fees bill and can be paid along with your University charges or using financial aid.
What is the benefit of participating in the program?
The goal of this program is to improve your success in the classroom and overall here at UNO. This program helps all students start on day one with all the required materials needed to be successful.
Studies show students who don’t have their required course materials on the first day of class may be at a disadvantage. We want all Privateers playing on the same field, so we are offering this program to all students.
How do I access my materials?
If the course is offered through IncludED, you’ll receive an email from the UNO Bookstore the week before classes begin. This email will have a subject line of “Activate Your Digital Content,” which will contain an activation link, or “Your Digital Books Have Arrived,” which will contain an access code.
If your email contains an access code, login to your course in Moodle and follow your instructors’ directions to register your code.
If you need your textbooks shipped please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, student ID number, student email address and correct shipping address.
Accessing through Follett Discover Access?
A student can also get to the bookshelf by clicking the link in Follett Discover Access for BryteWave. This link acts just like the LTI link and will pass that student into their BryteWave Shelf.
Accessing through the course in the campus Learning Management System (LMS)?
If the professor has added the RedShelf BryteWave link in their LMS, then that link will send the student into their BryteWave account / shelf. If they haven’t created an account at this time, they would need to complete their BryteWave account setup. If they follow the link after order release has provisioned the material, that student’s books should already be on their shelf.
Accessing through an auto-provision email?
BrtyeWave (RedShelf) will be provisioned to the student’s academic email address. This will create an account for the student that they can log into on the BryteWave login and find the preloaded material.
The login URL for BryteWave is now located at: https://brytewave.redshelf.com
While they can get in at the URL, they may have to request a password change if they don’t follow the activation link that was emailed to them. So, all ACCESS provisioned students will receive an email that looks like this sample (or advance to last page for image). If the student clicks the link in the email, it will pass them into their BryeWave shelf (which is the same as if they logged in at the login URL) and will be able to complete an account set up. (set password, etc.)
If your course requires courseware/homework solutions (formerly access codes), login into Moodle and follow your instructors instructions. No code is needed but you do need to use your UNO.EDU email for accessing the material.
How do I know if my books are provided by Follett ACCESS?
All undergrad and graduate students are on this program starting Spring 2020.
You will receive an email from UNO describing the program and benefits, followed by an email from the UNO Bookstore for if you materials in ready to be picked up in the bookstore OR if it is available in your digital bookshelf.
What will the charge look like on my UNO bill?
A charge will appear on your UNO bill for the UNO Bookstore – Follett ACCESS. The charge will appear under the description of your bill. You can pay through the UNO portal, or Student Accounting website, or allow it to be covered by your financial aid when it disperses.
What happens if I drop a course?
If you drop a course then the digital ebook access will be remove and if you have picked up a physical book then you will need to return it back to the bookstore by the add/drop period to avoid being charged extra fees for non-return.
Who do I contact if I have questions about Follett ACCESS?
If you have questions, you can email email@example.com or call 504-280-6373.
How do I opt out of Follett ACCESS?
Spring 2024 -- You have until 1/4/24 to opt out of the Follett ACCESS Program for Spring 2024 and until 1/13/24 to opt back in. You can opt out or back in by clicking here.
Fees being refunded on your UNO account will not take place until after the add/drop date for each semester.
Reminder – you are opting out or back in for your entire semester schedule. You cannot opt out and opt in of individual courses.
How do I purchase materials from the UNO Bookstore if I’ve opted out?
Even if you have opted out of the Follett ACCESS program, you can still purchase your required items from the bookstore. We know students who opt out may still need to use financial aid or scholarships in the bookstore. Please note, many of our items are custom priced for Follett ACCESS from publishers, and will be a different price than what is on the bookstore’s website. Some items --like physical books -- are readily available at the bookstore. Some, though, like courseware products (for example McGraw Connect and Pearson Mylab) may need to be special ordered for you. If you would like to purchase your materials from the bookstore off of the Follett ACCESS program, we ask that you please click here to fill out our informational form, and someone from the bookstore will contact you directly to set that up. This will ensure you get your materials as quickly as possible, even if we need to order in a special item. We will work with you to get you the materials you need, even if you are unable to come to the store.
*If you are using a Bookstore Voucher, please make sure you fill out the form before the vouchers expire. We need to make sure we can set that up with enough time to use your voucher.
