All you need to do to create your own coursepack is to provide us with the original material and a table of contents, and we will secure all of the necessary copyright permissions. You will provide your students with a coursepack customized specifically for your course with the same ease as you prepare your own course materials for your classes.

Concordia Print Services is responsible for the production of coursepacks used by faculty in the teaching process. Over the years, we solicited and received thousands of copyright permissions on behalf of faculty members and prepared and printed thousands of customized coursepack titles.


Offering ePacks makes your course material more accessible and cost efficient to your students. Students can purchase their ePack at the Book Stop bookstore or online and save up to 50% off the price of a paper coursepack.

Students can download digital coursepacks on any compatible device. They can highlight, bookmark and add notes as they would a printed coursepack.
