HELP DETERMINING IF THE LIBRARY HAS ACCESS TO YOUR COURSE RECOMMENDED MATERIALS

The titles below were noted as having been ordered by students for classes.  This list was pulled at the end of January.  It is obviously not all of the books that have been adopted for this term, it is about 30% of the titles that students have purchased.  

Please note that some of these are ebooks.  You can locate these in our Discovery catalog and use the permalinks in the Canvas course to help ensure students have access to the material!  Print items can be placed on Course Reserve.
