The Copyright and Scholarly Communications Office is excited to share that the UVic Libraries eTextbooks for students 2023-2024 list has been updated with the reading materials for the 2024 summer semester. The list is a collection of electronic versions of course textbooks that are available to students at no extra charge through the Libraries.

The eTextbooks for Students initiative supports the Libraries’ advocacy work and aligns with its Strategic Directions. With this project we are able to determine how much the Libraries’ licensed resources are being used across all faculties and levels of course work. The Libraries’ expanded eBook collection allows instructors to assign quality course materials, while providing affordable solutions for students.

Students can access the eTextbook list on Course Reserves by following this link, or scanning the QR code above!

*Tip for students*

If you are signed in to your Course Reserves account, you can add it to your “My Lists” collection for easy access to the list in the future!
