Published on 29 May, 2020

Textbooks for summer courses are available for purchase or rental through CSN's Bookstores. Online you can locate information about finding what textbooks are needed for your courses, as well as how to purchase or rent textbooks.

CSN's campus libraries have some textbooks on reserve. Through our Ask A Librarian link, CSN librarians can let you know the availability of your textbook while the campus libraries are closed during COVID-19:

  • We will need to know the title of the textbook, your instructor’s name, and the course code & section number 
  • If your textbook is on reserve in our campus libraries, we may be able to email you some pages or chapters
  • Due to copyright and other restrictions, we can only make portions of a textbook available to you digitally
  • We can only email copies of textbook pages to your CSN email address, which must end in @student.csn.edu or @csn.edu
  • It will take several days from when you place your textbook request to when you receive the pages
