Is there a place we can go, and enter our book information and make purchases ahead of the class starting?
Brian, greetings and welcome to the global Community of all Canvas users! Based on your question, it sounds like you are having a school specific issue more than an issue with Canvas. In general the Community is here to support your general (non-school or course specific) Canvas questions, yet, I did a little searching online and found the following information from your school bookstore - https://usm.bncollege.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/TBWizardView?catalogId=10001&langId=-1&storeId=13556 - You should be able to figure out your books by using this website.
Hope this helps! Kona
