Damascene Site

Log in or create an account. This account is specific to the bookstore and is not the same as your SUNY log in and password.


Enter email address (this does not have to be your SUNY email) and choose a password.

Shipping info – Enter student name and shipping address. Shipping info still required for in store pickup even though order will not be shipped.

Billing info – Please enter name and billing address of cardholder.

My Cart

If you are renting, you must click the check box for each rental item which will open a terms and conditions pop up. Scroll to the bottom and click accept.

Textbook Options

If checked, this allows us to substitute and bill a new book if there are no used copies available. Prior to the semester start, our website shows new and used options but does not reflect actual stock on hand. During the semester only items in stock are orderable.

If paying with dragon dollars and renting – after applying your payment (by entering the 16 digit number from the front of your SUNY ID and pressing “apply to my order”), you will need to enter credit card info to be put on file for the rental. The credit card will not be charged unless the rental is damaged or not returned.

Review your order

Review and make changes if necessary. The order is not finalized until clicking “place my order” at the bottom of the page.

You will not be charged until your order is processed. This usually happens right before classes begin.

You will receive a confirmation email upon placing the order and will receive a second email once the order has been processed.
