How it Works

To Browse Books

  1. To browse for books you do not have to be registered.
  2. View our library of all available books by selecting "Browse Books" on any page.
  3. Search books "By University", "Advanced Search", or simply using the standard search buttons under "View all books" labeled 'Book title' or 'ISBN'.

To Post/Sell a Book

  1. You must first register and log in to your account to post any books for sale.
  2. Register using your Facebook on the Home Page or use SwitchMyBooks.com and select the "Register" button on any page.
  3. After logging in, click the "List Book" tab at the top, next to the "View all books" tab in the library of books.

To Contact a Book Seller

This option to contact a student seller is for a book on a specific campus. SwitchMyBooks does not sell this book directly to you but facilitates you to connect with the seller using our platform.


  1. You must first register and log in to your account to contact any student sellers.
  2. Upon finding a student book you wish to purchase, select the "Contact Seller" button.
  3. The "Contact Seller" button will notify you and the seller through the e-mails you registered with.
  4. Follow the automated procedure to successfully contact your seller. 

To Reserve a Book

This option says to "Reserve Book" as opposed to "Contact Seller". In this case a student posted a book before they are ready to sell it and you can reserve that book for .99cents with this option before it reaches the 'Available Date' noted in the book details.

  1. You must first register and log in to your account to reserve any student books for future.
  2. Upon finding a student book you wish to reserve, click the button "Reserve Book".
  3. Follow the automated procedure to successfully contact your seller.
