Looking for a Textbook?

Looking for a textbook and want a deal? The campus bookstore is a great option for new and used textbooks, but you can always check textbook prices online.

Buy Textbooks
Use so called aggregated search engines, such as,,, and, where you can search for textbooks by title and edition, and compare prices among 50+ online vendors.

Rent Textbooks
Consider renting textbooks from online stores; the prices are reasonable and the rental options are endless – from 3 days to several months.

Borrow Textbooks
And don’t forget about your campus library! Many instructors place textbooks “on-reserve”; this means that you ask for them at the library counter and use them in the library for two hours.

Have a question? Ask a librarian!
