Updated online ordering in K-State Research and Extension bookstore

By Regina Nixon

With just a few clicks, K-State Research and Extension bookstore and mail center clients can view and order books, organizational supplies, educational documents, enrollment forms and promotional items using the site’s new shopping cart/checkout features.

The site was recently upgraded and moved to a new online location to improve options and functionality. Returning clients can log in and begin adding educational documents, supplies or promotional items to the shopping cart. Applicable discounts will be displayed for K-State Research and Extension and K-State clients upon logging in. New clients will be prompted to provide shipping and invoicing information to place an order. All users may view the hundreds of free PDF documents available by browsing or by using the improved site search.

Among items available are Stored Product Protection, a book focused on protecting food and other stored commodities; Ingredient Substitutions, a handy guide for spice and other recipe substitutions; Kansas Garden Guide, an updated version of the old horticultural favorite; and a 4-H Join the Club color-changing cup. The site also includes unbiased research information in documents such as 2012 Kansas Performance Tests with Winter Wheat Varieties and Swine Day 2012.

The bookstore and mail center, housed in the department of communications and agricultural education, serves K-State Research and Extension across the state — along with all of campus — by distributing thousands of documents each week. In conjunction with the K-State Research and Extension mail center and university printing, published documents can be posted or printed and shipped by departmental staff.
