Updates on Services from the Kresge Course Materials Team
The Kresge Course Materials team has made a few changes that we hope will help keep students and faculty members safe this Fall. You can find all the details on our webpage (https://tinyurl.com/rosscoursepacks), but here are a few highlights:
- New TEXTPAK Shipping and Pickup Options: Kresge staff have temporarily closed the TEXTPAK delivery point in Kresge Hall. To obtain their TEXTPAKs, students may opt to pick them up at a new point in the University of Michigan’s Print-Copy-Mail offices, or have the TEXTPAK shipped to a home address. Our page (https://tinyurl.com/rosscoursepacks) has more details on shipping and locations.
- A Course Materials Chat Service: If you’d like to ask us how to purchase, access, or ship your course materials, please give our new Course Materials Chat service a try. Just visit our webpage (https://tinyurl.com/rosscoursepacks) and type your question in the Chat box. We’ll be available from 10:00AM to 4:00PM, Monday through Friday. We also welcome questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
