Course Reserves - Textbooks and Study Aids

For the Fall 2020 term, due to COVID-19 related restrictions, the Rodino Center will not be circulating any print textbooks from the Course Reserve Collection. A small handful of textbooks are available in electronic format. Check the Course Reserves catalog to confirm what is available in electronic format. If the title is available in electronic format, it may be limited to one user at a time.

We recommend purchasing or renting electronic versions of textbooks for the 2020-2021 academic year. If purchasing print (or print/electronic combinations) textbooks, save receipts in case the publishers allow you to convert to electronic format mid-semester, if needed.

Check the following sites for textbook rentals (which are often less expensive than purchasing):

Selected study aids are available in West Academic Online Study Aids.

Some publishers will allow free, online access for a limited period of time at the beginning of the term; this may prove helpful until physical books are received. 

  • West Academic usually provides free, 14-day online access with any purchase. Contact West Academic if you don’t have an email that contains instructions for access. You can check to see if this is the case for your title of interest: https://www.westacademic.com/. If you purchased from Amazon or another vendor, contact West Academic support and provide proof of purchase to see if you can have electronic, temporary access. 
  • Wolters Kluwer posts content for the first chapter or two for some of their textbooks. Students should check the textbook on the Wolters Kluwer website. Most Wolters Kluwer textbooks have online access as well. 
  • If the publication is a Carolina Academic Press title, double check Course Reserves to see if we have an e-version.
