Where can I find the materials that my instructor assigned for my class?

A great place to start looking for assigned materials is the Shasta College Bookstore's textbook section. Most textbooks that are assigned by professors will appear here after you enter the semester you are attending and the specific classes you are taking.

Additional rental & purchase sites that offer used and new books include: Chegg, and Amazon.

If your instructor put something on "reserve" in the library for the class to use, go to the library home page and click on either textbooks or advanced search located under the search bar in the center of the page. You can search for reserve materials by instructor, course number, or course name.  You can also check in the library catalog by title or author.

In addition, the Student Services research guide offers ideas on textbook assistance.
