CVA partners with MBS Direct to provide our students a Virtual Bookstore. MBS Direct is one of the largest mail order textbook suppliers in the country, with over 7 million books in their Columbia, Missouri facility. Students have been pleased with their service, reliability, and convenience. MBS Direct sells new and, if available, used books. They also have a textbook buyback program. Please note that students can get their textbook information from the list and may purchase their books from any source.
