University Library - Textbook Alternatives

Many EMU students struggle to afford texts and may attempt courses without the text, risking lower grades or failure. Quality alternatives are increasingly available, including open access texts, library e-books, article links, or inexpensive books from scholarly & trade publishers. Search using the Textbook Alternatives Guide or ask your Subject Librarian for help finding options.
