From that link you can see if your books are included in over half of our textbooks available for rent, saving students on average 50% off the new price of the book. We also offer digital and used options on thousands of books. Textbooks are arranged on the shelves alphabetically by class (using abbreviations as they appear in the class schedule) and numerically by section. It is helpful to have a copy of your class schedule to locate the proper class and section number.
