Making course materials accessible to all students is the Library’s highest priority because student success depends on access to required course materials.
Unfortunately, textbook publishers will not sell us electronic versions of their books that we can legally share. We are also legally limited in how much we can scan.
Library staff are actively exploring options for alternatives to the print reserves collection. We may be able to scan limited portions from some textbooks, but this depends on safe work and travel conditions for any staff who would come to campus.
We have also been talking to professors and helping them find low-cost and zero cost course materials. You can also talk with your professors about this issue!
Thank you for your understanding as we try our best to make course materials available. Please use the chat box on the Library’s website or email us if you have any questions.
