Why is the textbook ordering period open for a certain amount of time?

All textbook titles are not available throughout the whole year. Each semester, textbooks are ordered for courses that are offered during the current semester. The textbook overstock from each semester needs to be returned before the upcoming semester’s ordering period. Also, students with Financial Aid must have an account created with the Virtual Bookstore before the ordering period. These accounts are available until a week before the semester disbursement date & need to be purged before the start of a new ordering period.
