the optimum screen resolution when using our site?
For the best experience we suggest using 1024 x 768. Don’t forget you can also adjust font size by using your Internet Explorer’s View a Text size menu (IE toolbar at the top of your screen)
I’m not sure how to get started?
Play with our system! Go to “My Carts” first to set up a test shopping cart. Then go to “Catalog Search” and find titles to drop in. Each page has its own help menu to assist you in getting your order ready. You can do anything you want (just remember to avoid sending your order until you’re really ready)
What about saving my order as an Excel
You can download a list of your purchase orders and their details as an Excel file on your PC for your records and analysis.
Suppose I’m confused about multiple
versions of the same title?
Don’t worry. Pick what you think is close and when you get to “Check Out” you’ll find a comments field. Send us a note, e.g. “I want the CD only, not CD + DVD” and we’ll ship the correct item.
I can’t find a title in your database. What
Email any requests to firstname.lastname@example.org (you can also fax us at 847 869 9997). We'll always quote price and availability before shipping.
Can I transfer a cart to another user
in my library?
Absolutely. This feature makes it easy to send carts back and forth to any of your team members.
Is there a quick guide I can print to
get me started?
You bet: It’s our CD Source Cheat Sheet. Download or print at
