The library has copies of some, but not all, course textbooks. You can check if the library has the textbook you need by searching course reserves. You can search for reserve materials by instructor, course number, or course name. If you can't find the book in course reserves check in the library catalog by title or author.

If the library does not have the textbook available, you can rent or purchase your required textbooks through the Shasta College Bookstore. The bookstore will ensure you find the most recent edition of the textbook requested by the professor, and by using the textbook information from the bookstore you can check other sites for renting and buying options that best fit your budget.

Additional rental & purchase sites include: Chegg, and Amazon.
