Looking for a Required Textbook?

We get it. We're here to help
THE LIBRARY MAY HAVE A FREE OPTION FOR YOU...

    These e-books, print books, and electronic course readings are available right now


    PRINT & ELECTRONIC COURSE RESERVES at the Textbook Center or Online: Your professor may be using the Library's print or e-books and articles as required materials. Your prof may even have loaned us his or her own copy of your required texts! Check your syllabus, stop at the user services desk, or look them up yourself right here.

    Need a password for electronic reserves? It's probably on your syllabus, but don't hesitate to ask a librarian or your instructor.


    THE PRINT TEXTBOOK CENTER, located on the first floor of the Library at the User Services desk, offers a limited selection of print textbooks required for many of the larger general education classes for the semester. Any CSU student with a valid Viking Card may borrow these textbooks to use for a 2-hour loan.

    Two hours not enough? Remember, the library has two FREE self-serve scanners, allowing you to scan materials directly to an email address, USB drive, or Google Drive account, then print your scanned content from any campus computer using your PaperCut print balance.

    Since print textbooks are being shared with everyone taking the same class, there is a $1.00 per hour overdue fee for any materials returned late. Please be considerate of your classmates and return them on time.
