Students: Get free, digital access to books, articles, videos for your classes!

Are you concerned about the high costs of course materials — whether they’re books, articles, or videos? The Library can help! Before registering for a course, you can ask the instructor whether the material will be available via e-reserves, which will provide you with free access to the required materials. After you register, you can look this up in bCourses, if the class has a bCourse site.  Refer to Course Reserves for more information, including how to contact the e-reserves team with questions or comments.
