What is it?: The Library's Course Book Collection contains one copy of almost every book sold at the Bookstore and required by SXU faculty in all subject areas. The collection usually does not include lab manuals, software packages, or CDs.
The editions: Whenever possible, the Library acquires the latest edition. Because of the high cost of some textbooks, the Library may acquire a previous edition.
Using the collection: You are welcome to use any book at no charge, but they must be used in the Library and cannot be checked out. You can photocopy or scan materials, but please abide by the notice of federal copyright law posted by the copier and scanners. The Copyright Law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs the making of photocopies and other reproductions of copyrighted material. Such copies can be made only under certain conditions. One such condition is that the photocopy or reproduction not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship or research." Use of the reproduction may make the user liable for copyright infringement.
