In light of the ongoing disruption to on-campus learning, we’ve partnered with our digital course material platform, VitalSource, and leading publishers to launch VitalSource Helps, a program offering free access to ebooks for students who may have lost access to course materials with the rapid move to distance learning.
If you previously accessed textbooks via the library, shared a book with a classmate, or left your books on campus, visit bookshelf.vitalsource.com to access free ebooks through May 25. VitalSource Helps provides access to tens of thousands of ebooks, but some content may not be available.
To access free materials, you must use your .edu email to log in or create an account. Before you get started, we encourage you to review this student FAQ.
We hope this will be of assistance to you as you continue your studies online.

*Please Note, we understand that it is not always possible to submit information strictly under this time frame and will always send reminder emails to you with specific due dates for each term.”
Return Rented Textbooks
In light of the University canceling face-to-face classes, we understand that returning rented books at the end of the semester may pose a challenge to students. As a response to this our bookstore has created a prepaid UPS shipping option that can be leveraged by the students to return their rented books. See How to Ship Your Rentals to the Bookstore.
