Borrow Course Textbooks from the Library

No comments :

The aim of the Libraries' Course Textbook Initiative is to increase student access to textbooks and offset student costs. The U of A Libraries allocates $100,000 annually to purchase selected course textbooks. $100,000 doesn’t cover all course textbooks, so, we follow these priorities:

  • Textbook is REQUIRED for the course (not recommended or optional)
  • Cost is $50 or more
  • Effective January 1, 2017 there is no minimum enrollment threshold number  20 or more students are enrolled in the course
A small portion of the budget has been set aside to respond to student requests for textbooks that fall outside of these priorities. Suggest a purchase.

In order for as many students as possible to use these textbooks, they are made available in Library Reserve Collections, and may be borrowed for 2 hours during library hours.
