Free eTextbooks!

Due to the sudden closure of universities and colleges and moving to remote instruction, there's a new problem of access to textbooks.  Many publishers have opened up their collections for temporary open access or free trials.  Below is a list of resources students (and faculty!) can use to search their textbook titles and see if there is open electronic access to them.

Please know that most, if not all, of these services are temporary, so please check for an end date.

We are always happy to help! If you need assistance with searching for your textbook, or a comparable resource, please let us know: reference@regiscollege.edu
