Obtaining Your Textbooks in Electronic Format

Every year students are able to find more and more of their textbooks in electronic format. The LSC suggests that students who need this format for textbooks become familiar with the various places that they might be available. Below we have outlined a possible search procedure students can use to locate text on their own.

When a student cannot find a textbook in electronic format, the LSC will contact the book's publisher to obtain an electronic version (usually a PDF). In most cases, the publisher will require that the student purchase a hard copy of the book and show a receipt of purchase to our office. Students who obtain text from us also are required to sign an agreement regarding use of the book.
