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.


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.

Submit Course Materials (FacultyEnlight)

This link is available on the right of the course home page and allows faculty to:

  • Research and adopt course materials in one place
  • Compare the estimated cost to student and format availability before adopting
  • Read and write product reviews
  • Access past adoptions for the past two years

When faculty click this link it will pair their Canvas ID to their FacultyEnglight account. The faculty’s course information will be automatically populated saving them this step in the process when submitting their course material selections to the UAB bookstore.

FacultyEnlight can be accessed outside the Canvas environment at

Order Course Materials (UAB Bookstore)

Students will need to log in or create a UAB Bookstore account. Once an account is created and access through the Order Course Materials link in Canvas, their bookstore account will be paired with their Canvas ID, so that they don’t need to log in again when using this link in future courses.

What are the benefits of adopting materials online?

Students can then click the Bookstore link Canvas or visit to see and purchase course materials.

Can the site be used without registering?

  • Submit new adoptions with greater ease
  • Review adoptions for the past two years
  • Create and access favorites lists

If I would like students to choose from a list of titles, do I select “Required” or “Recommended” for each book?

Select “Required” for the list of books you want in your “Go To Class First” list, but in the notes section on the Review/Submit Order page, please specify that this is a “Go To Class First” list.

If a title is not found, how can it be adopted?

If a title isn't found, selecting the link 'Search" will search all the books available on If the title still cannot be found, at the bottom of every search results page, there is a form entitled “Enter New Title.” Fill in all the fields and proceed with the adoption process.
