'Virtual' Bookstore Goes Online

Lindenwood University has contracted with MBS Direct to create a program to help provide students with improved customer service and access to money-saving used books. Here’s how it works:


MBS Direct maintains a current list of Lindenwood courses and the books/materials for those courses. You shop for your course materials by course. No need to have author, title, or ISBN information. · You can access the Virtual Bookstore at or call MBS Direct at 800-325-3252 and note that you are a student at Lindenwood University. · You may pay by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. · Orders are processed within 24 hours and either delivered to campus for distribution or shipped directly to an off-campus address. MBS operators are available to take your call as follows: Monday-Thursday, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. CDT/CST Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. CDT/CST Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CDT/CST Sunday, noon to 4 pm CDT/CST

The Virtual Bookstore can be accessed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Please keep the URL listed above in a convenient place for easy access when you are ready to place your course materials order.

The Virtual Bookstore will inform you of the availability of used books and optional materials, and will allow you to determine the best method for shipping.

While you may purchase new books, the MBS textbook buyers make every effort to maximize the number of used books available, providing you with a 25 percent savings.

DELIVERY: We have arranged for a special, low-cost method of distributing course materials to you. Once on the Virtual Bookstore, you will select the “on-campus delivery” option. Orders placed under this delivery method will be distributed to you at our current bookstore location. These orders will be pre-packaged and labeled with your name.

More information and specific dates and times for this distribution will follow. If you decide to order textbooks to delivery to an off-campus address, orders are delivered via UPS. You pay the current UPS rate based on weight of the package and where the package is being shipped. (Priority Mail is also available).
