Find the ISBN Numbers for Your Textbooks

It is important to make sure you are purchasing the exact textbook your instructor is requiring for your NAU courses. This will ensure the pages you read and the exercises you complete are the same as those assigned by the instructor. One way to ensure you are purchasing the correct textbook is to check for the correct ISBN number. You can look up the correct textbook information even before you enroll in a course by following the steps below to View Required Textbooks in LOUIE.

After logging into your LOUIE Student Center, select the Search for Classes button located in the upper right-hand side of the window.

This will bring up a list of the classes that meet the search criteria. Click on the Section number link to see the Class Details for this class section.

NOTE: Each class section could be taught by a different instructor, so it’s important to bring up the Class Details page for each section in which you are considering enrolling and notice whether a different textbook is required.
