The Ottenheimer Library begins a new service to provide 2 to 3 copies of each textbook used in 7 core courses. The new service is a pilot project that the library anticipates will help students who, for whatever reason, may not have access to a personal copy. The library targeted courses with ten or more sections typically taken by students in their first year.
Beginning August 18th, students will find the selected textbooks at the circulation desk on the first floor. Available on a first come, first served basis for up to 2 hours at a time, the textbooks must be used in the library. Students must purchase lab manuals and accompanying access codes for biology and mathematics textbooks.
Listed below are the textbooks that are available.
- BIOL 1401 Science of Biology (11 sections) Biology: Concepts and Applications.
