Save Money on Textbooks with the Washington University Libraries

Did you know that the Washington University Libraries provide free access to the print books, electronic books, and other course materials that students require for classes?

That’s right—we have access to millions of course-required books that students can utilize at absolutely no cost. Some of these books are located in the Danforth Campus libraries, while others can be borrowed from libraries throughout the country. Still others can be accessed digitally via the University Libraries’ website.

Before you dole out big bucks for textbooks, check in with the University Libraries! We can help you get books and other class resources—for free.

Check out this resource on textbook affordability.

Don’t miss our free virtual workshop on October 15! Participants will learn how to access affordable course materials during COVID-19.
