We're sorry, but while the library building is closed, you cannot get your textbook from us. I recommend you talk with your teacher, who has probably made other plans already.

However, many companies are making their textbooks, calculators, and model simulations free for students during this crisis. 

Check out these resources below:


Online Textbooks

RedShelf Free e-Textbooks (Instructions for Borrowing a Book from RedShelf)

Through its RedShelf Responds initiative, the company is providing free access to digital textbooks (to students from nonprofit, semester-based colleges and universities) through May 25th. We've checked and many of your textbooks are included in RedShelf.

VitalSource Helps (Bookshelf)

VitalSource Helps is a program designed to support students and instructors who may have lost access to course materials due to a campus moving to distance learning to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This program is made possible by the leading publishers and resellers in US higher education. The program offers free access to tens of thousands of eBook through May 25, 2020. Can only have up to 6 textbooks on your bookshelf.


Calculators
