Course Ebooks

If the library doesn't have a required text for your course, we will do our best to get one for you and your classmates to share if you fill out the Request Course Reserves form.

  • First, we will try to secure licensed, digital copies of books and articles (subject to licensing and availability).
  • Second, we will purchase physical copies of the texts to share with students at the Circulation Desk.
  • Third, we will scan print materials and give students access based on Control Digital Lending's 1:1 ratio principle as time and resources permit
