Library Support for Online Teaching: Textbook Availability & Options

Textbook Availability

Current conditions dictate that we will have minimal to no staff on-site in the library until at least the end of Fall Quarter. A plan for distributing textbooks to students for Fall Quarter is currently in development. However, we encourage faculty to consider options other than print textbooks/materials for Summer & Fall Quarter. The library is committed to helping you identify potential options. Please see other information in this guide about our licensed electronic books, open educational resources, and public domain books.

Please check back for updates.

OER Resource Collections in Canvas Commons

A search of "CVC" in the Canvas Commons will show you the CVC-OEI's OpenStax resources. Additionally, a search for "ASCCC" will show you resources that the ASCCC OERI Initiative is adding to the Commons. You can import a Commons resource directly into a Canvas course shell - where its contents will be added to whatever is already in the course. The only elements that the new content will override will be the image in the Canvas dashboard and the licensing indicated on the Frontpage.
