Welcome to the ETextbooks Library Guide

Created by geralt on Pixabay.

This new library guide lists WSU textbooks that are available online through the University Libraries. Links are also available through the library's online catalog. These etextbooks have been acquired by the Libraries so that students may use them free of charge. Print copies are also available through the University Bookstore for students who prefer to purchase their own copy. NOTE: University Libraries does not own the electronic version of all textbooks, either because they are not available to us electronically at a reasonable cost from publishers such as Pearson and McGraw-Hill or our budget cannot cover all possible purchases.

Most of the etextbooks are accessible to unlimited simultaneous users. If access is more limited - such as to 1 simultaneous user, the listing indicates the exact number of simultaneous users allowed. We will upgrade those textbooks to unlimited usage whenever possible. Some etextbooks have printing and/or downloading limits.

To check to see if an electronic version of your textbook is among those purchased by the library, click on tab for the appropriate semester on the left. Then search by title under the first tab at the top or by course number in the second tab. If you locate your textbook, click on the title to access the etextbook.

If you have any questions about etextbooks at University Libraries or why we do not have a particular textbook online, please contact the Coordinator of Collection Development or the Subject Librarian assigned to your department/course.If you encounter any problems accessing an etextbook, please fill out an Electronic Resource Technical Support Form, and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
