eBooks on Reserve: New Library Pilot Program
The University Library is experimenting with a new way to deliver required e-textbooks to students. In collaboration with faculty, the library has purchased several electronic copies of course-required books. The books appear in COAST and may be read online or downloaded to a computer or e-reader; they are available for 1-day checkout at no charge to students. See our Ebooks on Reserve page for more information and directions on how to access the materials. This effort, funded by the Chancellor’s Office and the Library, is part of Affordable Learning Solutions (AL$), a program of the California State University System designed to encourage more choice, affordability, and accessibility in assigned course materials.
