Pono 'Uhane Bookstore

The bookstore is located inside the Kapolei Campus, third floor of the Kapolei Medical Center building. We offer textbooks on-site for the current term "face-to-face" classes and they are on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Inclusive Access (VitalSource) textbooks:
Most courses at the Hawaii and American Samoa campuses will have digital books available in Blackboard using VitalSource at a reduced cost.  Once you can access your Blackboard account, select the etextbook link and log in with your Wayland Student email information and then you should see your etextbook.  Although your account has been charged automatically, VitalSource allows a "try before your buy" for the first 12 days of the course.  You must then determine to keep the VitalSource textbook or opt out and obtain your own textbook.  You are responsible to have a textbook for your class.  If you decide to opt out, your account will be updated with charges removed sometime after Census date.  Although The Hawaii Bookstore will stop stocking books that are now listed under VitalSource, some copies may be available. Students may also need to create Cengage and Pearson accounts for some etextbooks.
