Textbook Selection


Faculty Enlight is no longer used for textbook selection. The AIP replaces Faculty Enlight as of Spring 2021.

Stacks of booksThe Adoption & Insight Portal (AIP) is Barnes and Noble’s textbook selection software (B&N manages ACC’s brick and mortar bookstores). It offers a more streamlined integration between ACC’s textbook selection process and B&N’s order management system. Using AIP will also help students view the correct information (textbook and associated costs) when they click on the ‘Textbooks’ links provided in ACC’s online Course Schedule and ensure that B&N has the correct books/materials available for students.

Access the NEW Adoption and Insight Portal

All staffed sections are required to have materials/textbooks ordered by the first day of registration for each semester.

For specific instructions on ordering textbooks, please contact your department.
