Publications and other products may be ordered from our secure e-commerce store or by mail, using this printable form.

For orders prepaid by check, institutional orders, or free publications (see restrictions below):

NOTE: Because of rising postage costs and unpredictable customs fees, we do not accept orders for hard copies from outside the U.S. You will find many of our publications availabe for free download on this website or on the National Sea Grant Library site. Some of our publications are also available to purchase as digital downloads from our e-commerce store.

Sales & shipping policies


We accept payment by check (payable to Oregon State University) and credit card (via e-commerce store only). We also accept purchase orders for some institutional customers.

Bulk orders or discounts

Contact us to inquire about bulk orders. We also offer discounts to schools, libraries and some retailers. Please contact us for a quote.

Shipping and delivery

All orders are shipped by the least expensive method possible, unless otherwise requested.

Our shipping rates can be viewed on our e-commerce store.

Orders are generally filled within two to four weeks. If an item is out of stock or out of print, we will notify you and give you the opportunity to cancel your order. Please note that we process and ship orders only on weekdays; if you need a publication or video by a particular date, plan ahead and contact us if you have any questions.

Free publications

We will ship up to 10 copies, total (not per title), of our free publications with no shipping charge to U.S. customers. If you order more than 10 free items, there is a minimal charge for each item over 10 and the customer pays for shipping and handling. Many of our free publications are available for download, in printable .pdf format.

We accept returns and offer refunds only for goods damaged in shipping. Please contact us first.
