About Textbooks

Do I need to buy a textbook for my class?

Required reading lists are developed by faculty and may include textbooks or books that students are expected to purchase for their own use. Some courses do not have required textbooks, or the course readings are made available to students via links to the online library. The type of assigned reading may vary by course throughout your program. Students are responsible for ensuring they have access to required course materials. Required materials lists are posted on the student portal and purchases may be made through the College Bookstores. Students who are having difficulty with finances associated with purchasing their required materials may contact their Student Success Facilitator or Financial Aid Office.


A Note about Required Textbooks and Library Lending

The library has offered a supplemental service where some popular textbooks or older editions may be available in the library collections for short-term loan. Availability is not guaranteed. Where possible, the library will acquire electronic editions of course materials as a supplemental service. Due to publisher restrictions, most traditional textbooks (publishers such as McGraw Hill, Pearson, Nelson, Elsevier, Cengage, and others) are not available for library licensing and distribution. Faculty may contact the library for options when selecting course material.
