All students deserve to be able to access course texts. The high costs of textbooks and other course materials prohibit access and perpetuate inequity, and Barnard librarians are partnering with students, faculty, and staff to increase access. The Barnard Library recommends the following strategies for students to access course texts at no cost, as well as advocating that faculty make their texts more accessible via the Library.
The following are some ways you can find affordable texts through the library and beyond. For more information, please check out the libraries Making Required Texts Affordable page on the library website.
