The UAB Bookstore is integrated into Canvas so that faculty and students can access their UAB Bookstore portal within the Canvas environment. This integration streamlines the textbook adoption process for faculty, allowing them to select the course materials for their courses more easily. It also simplifies the purchase process for students, showing them the required and recommended materials for their course.

On this page:


  • Add/Edit Book Adoptions

    Instructors can access Adoptions and Insights Portal (AIP) to:

    • Research and adopt course materials in one place
    • Compare the estimated cost to student and format availability before adopting
    • Access past adoptions and renew or edit
    • Remove adoptions and choose OER cotent

    AIP can be accessed outside the Canvas environment at aip.bncollege.com.

  • Course Materials (First Day Access)

    As an instructor for a First Day/Inclusive Access course, you will need to add the Course Materials link in your Canvas course navigation so that students can Opt-Out of the program if they wish (during the Opt-Out period only) or access Courseware and eTextbook materials through this link. See instructions on adding Couse Materials to your Canvas course.


  • Order Course Materials (UAB Bookstore)

    Students can search and order course materials from uab.bncollege.com ,where they can view all available formats and pricing, and purchase the course materials specific to their course and section. Students will need to log in or create a UAB Bookstore account.
