Welcome to TigerBooks!

TigerBooks is a person-to-person book exchange designed to provide students with a central place to buy and sell used books. Through this service, users are able to post used books they would like to sell while others can search the database to find books they would like to buy. The Dalhousie Student Union does not manage the actual transactions. We simply provide a means for contacting those selling books.

If you have any additional questions with regard to using the site or if you encounter a problem, please contact the site administrator.

Info for Buyers

To search the book postings simply use the search fields on the Search page. You do not have to be logged in to view the postings however you must be logged in to contact the people selling books; this is done to prevent email abuse.

An online form is provided to contact the person selling the book. You must contact them directly to make arrangements to buy the book or find out more information. The Dalhousie Student Union urges all users to exercise caution in arranging to meet with others to buy or sell books. Individuals should consider meeting in a public or high traffic area such as the library or a coffee shop.

Please note that a posted book may no longer be available or may not be as the seller describes. If you are buying a textbook for a class, always check with the course instructor to determine what book and edition will be required.

Info for Sellers
