The Library has a Textbook Collection.  All of the textbooks are available for in library use only for three hours at a time.  This collection is intended to give students access to their textbooks when they are short of funds or when there has been a national disaster as in "Harvey or Ike".  If you can't find your textbook in our collection, please fill out this textbook request form and we will see if we can order if for you.  We only try to purchase books which cost over $100 and are used courses with multiple sections.  

What is an Open Textbook


An open textbook is a textbook licensed under an open copyright license, and made available online to be freely used by students, teachers and members of the public. Many open textbooks are distributed in either print, e-book, or audio formats that may be downloaded or purchased at little or no cost.
