Dear POGIL Community,
The POGIL Project and Wiley extend our sincere apologies to anyone who has tried to order books with the Wiley CustomSelect website and has encountered problems. We have been experiencing serious technical issues that have proved more difficult to resolve than either The POGIL Project or Wiley anticipated. Rest assured, we understand the frustrations that you are experiencing and we are working hard to fix the problems as quickly as possible.
Because of this inconvenience, we will offer PDF downloads of Calculus 1: A Guided Inquiry
and Quantum Chemistry & Spectroscopy: A Guided Inquiry
to faculty members who planned to use one of these books during the spring semester and have not had an order fulfilled, or who have received a print copy of the book with formatting errors. Please note that the corrected Quantum book is
also available at http://customselect.wiley.com/collection/pogil
if you would prefer to order the traditional way.
The process for obtaining a PDF download is as follows:
1. If you don’t already have one, please sign up for a username/password at pogil.org/apply
PLEASE COMPLETELY FILL OUT YOUR INFORMATION PROFILE, OR YOU WILL NOT BE GRANTED ACCESS to the website.
2. Next, email
requesting access to the desired textbook. In the email, please include the following:
a) your name, institution, course name, and the number of students who will be using the book.
b) which book you need
3. Once that information is received, we will add you to a groups page for the book and inform you of the URL where you will be able to download a copy of the book.
4. You will have permission to make ONE print copy for yourself and for each of your students in the relevant class for the Spring 2014 semester (or the Winter and Spring 2014 quarters). You many not share the PDF with anyone else, and you many not make additional print copies for any anyone else. You many not make copies for any students in a course that begins after May 15, 2014.
Again, this process is ONLY for courses offered during the spring semester or winter/spring quarters. We will resolve this issue in the near future so that printed materials will be available for use during the summer and fall terms.
Again, we want to express our sincerest apologies for this temporary setback. I know that the beginning of the semester is a hectic time, and I hope that this has not added to the stress.
Thank you for your understanding and patches as we work to address these problems.
The POGIL Project
