Publications and other products may be ordered from our secure, online Marketplace.

For orders prepaid by check, institutional orders or free publications (see restrictions below) please email us with your publication request.

NOTE: Because of rising postage costs and unpredictable customs fees, we do not accept orders for hard copies from outside the U.S. Many of our publications are available for free download on this website or available via interlibrary loan by emailing a request to the National Sea Grant Library.

Sales & shipping policies


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

Bulk orders or discounts

Contact us to inquire about bulk orders or to request a quote. We also offer discounts to schools and libraries.

Shipping and delivery

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

Our shipping rates can be viewed on our Marketplace site.

Orders are generally filled within two 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. If you need a product 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 ten free items, there is a minimal charge for each item over 10 and you pay for shipping and handling. Many of our free publications are available for download, in printable .pdf format.

Returns and refunds

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