Students count on you to lead the way with alternatives to costly textbooks:

  • Ebooks for the Classroom+ – Request ebooks through the USF Library.  If you don’t find what you need tell us what you need by using the E-Books Request form and we will do the rest.
  • Print Textbooks on Reserve– Find course textbooks that are available on reserve, or give the library a copy to add to reserves.

  • Open Access Textbooks – Open access textbooks are openly-licensed digital textbooks that are offered for free online.
  • Online Course Reserves in Canvas – The USF Libraries will make photocopies of journal articles and chapters in books. Request should not exceed the limits of fair use (see “Copyright Basics“). Photocopied materials will be scanned and made available electronically as PDF documents on Canvas.
  • Etextbook Pilots at USF– The USF Libraries can facilitate etextbook pilots at the departmental or faculty level with the textbook publishers Pearson, Wiley, and McGraw-Hill.
