Textbook Availability

Published on 29 May, 2020

Textbooks for fall semester courses are available for purchase or rental through CSN's Bookstores. Through the Bookstore's online website, 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 that can be used inside the library. If you plan to come into the library to use a textbook, please read our COVID-19 policies and procedures, as well as our campus library hours, before you visit.

Through our Ask A Librarian link, CSN librarians can let you know the availability of your textbook in the library and whether or not we can email you some pages or chapters:

  • 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

If you have any questions, just ask a librarian.
