How do I create a Lab Manual?

Once you are signed-in, the Lab Library build system (picture above right) will guide you through the steps. In summary, you will:

  1. Browse the available lab manual content
  2. Select the labs you want to use
  3. Upload your own content, such as; course syllabus, lab rules, unique reference materials, etc. for your own use (Important Note: Other faculty will NOT be able to access this personalized content you upload; this will be for your own exclusive use when building your custom Lab Manual)
  4. Create a custom cover
  5. Review the price per unit (which is what your students will pay for the custom Lab Manual)
  6. Finalize your order, which means your order will be verified, then sent to XanEdu Custom Publishing (The Lab Library's parent company) for production, and your campus bookstore for student purchase.

Help is always available if you require assistance with any of the steps! See our Support page or Contact page for contact options


How do my students get the Lab Manuals I create?

The Lab Library is run by XanEdu, a custom publisher who is a trusted bookstore partner with ties to college bookstores across the nation. When you finalize your lab manual, a notification will be sent to both your schools bookstore and an account representative at XanEdu. The school bookstore and XanEdu will coordinate to ensure your lab manuals are available as soon as possible. To check the status of your order, you can  call 1-888-212-3121 and the support team will help get you the information you need.


Can I just buy a Lab Manual that is already made?

Yes! If you prefer, there are ready-made lab manuals for each subject. If you want, you can customize your own cover, class introduction letter, table of contents, lab agreements, etc. or just use one that is ready-made; the choice is yours.


Can I bundle a carbonless lab notebook with my lab manuals?

XanEdu offers 50- and 100- count high-quality, low cost spiral-bound carbonless lab manuals that are the perfect accompaniment to your labs. You can either bundle the lab notebooks to your lab manual, or request the bookstore stock them for your students. More information about the XanEdu lab notebooks is here.
