Q. How can I access Course Reserve textbooks remotely?



Course Reserve materials will be available digitally only inside some online courses-- please contact your instructor. Physical Course Reserve checkout will not be available. 

For classes that routinely check out textbooks from the library for the entire quarterthe library will mail textbooks to students or arrange for curbside pickup. Your instructor will let you know if this applies to you.

If your instructor has asked you to make an appointment to pickup a class text (a "class set" textbook) at the library, you can look up your textbook in our library system and "Place a request for Curbside Pickup." See the directions linked below. 

Emergency Funding Available from GRC's Benefits Hub

Textbooks and other course materials are expensive, and COVID-19 has affected many of us financially. If you need assistance, please apply for this emergency funding grant. The grant awards student funding for Course Materials (textbooks, supplies, access codes...) among other emergency needs.

Other items this grant can assist with include: food; housing; technology (computers, headphones, webcams...); medical expenses; child care; utilities (electricity, internet, water/sewer, gas...); transportation (car payment, gas, bus fare...); and more...

For additional sources of possible loans of textbooks and other course materials, please see Holman Library guide to Textbooks & Other Course Materials.


Holman Library can assist instructors in scanning limited chapters of Course Reserve materials to pdf and send them to you so that the files can be uploaded to your Canvas page. To place a request for scanning assistance, please contact the Holman Library Circulation Department by email (circdesk @ greenriver.edu).
