Virtual Reference Desk: Bookstores

The CSU Bookstore is operated for Cleveland State University through an exclusive agreement with Follett Higher Education Group to provide textbooks and course materials.  The university receives proceeds from all purchases at the CSU Bookstore.  The proceeds are and will continue to be used to pay some of the CSU Student Center construction debt.
