Students are often challenged by the high costs of textbooks and other learning materials. Selecting books, book chapters, or journal articles that can be purchased in electronic form by the Libraries for campus use can reduce costs for students. And open-access textbooks are now available for many courses and disciplines. Consult with a librarian for further information.
