Q. How can I get access to course reserve textbooks?

How do I find an electronic copy of my textbook?


The print collection is inaccessible while the campus is closed for the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Check the campus website, “Virtual Support and Resources for Student - Access to Electronic Textbooks” for some options. Note: the campus subscription to the online textbook platforms RedShelf and VitalSource expired in May. 

If it is not already available the library will try to purchase required course reserves in electronic format if they exist. You will need to send the following information to eref@sdsu.edu or via the library chat widget on the homepage.

Book Title

Link to OneSearch course reserve record

The course code (e.g. RWS 100) & Instructor
