Finding Your Textbooks

Hunt Library has some textbooks available through our library databases, general collection, or on Course Reserves. Watch the video on how to find your textbooks at Hunt Library.

Using Open Resources

OER is more than just textbooks! OER can include simulations, videos, full courses and more that can support learning in and out of the classroom. Open resources like open images, music, and videos can also be used in your projects.

To get started looking for OER, see our Open Educational Resources Guide.

Student Advocacy

No one is more impacted by the cost of textbooks than students. There are lots of ways, big and small, to show your support for open education on campus.

  • Speak Up: Talk to faculty about their textbook, and let them know Hunt Library can help find more affordable options.
  • Learn and Share: Learn more about going open and share that information with classmates and instructors.
  • Celebrate Open: Stage an event celebrating Open Education Week, or publicly thank a professor who chooses affordable options.
