Textbooks and OERs

Students, see which textbooks we have for in-library use, and search our catalog for older editions.

If your course is using open educational resources (OERs), there should be a link or readings in your Canvas course. If you need help, ask us! Want to know more about OERs? Visit the Open Textbook Alliance.

Faculty, consult the MCC OER toolkit or the CCSNH Open Resources Page to learn how to adopt/adapt OERs instead of expensive textbooks.
