Where can I find my assigned readings?

You might be wondering where to find the readings assigned in your courses. There are a few places to look for these readings. Some might be in the library and some might not be.

They have information on how to find your books, how to order online and their contact information listed there. If you have any questions or need help ordering your books, contact the bookstore directly.

You are welcome to check the library e-book catalog to see if we have any of your textbooks in our online library but it is rare that we have textbooks available. You can search the e-book catalog by clicking on Books on the library homepage at www.esc.edu/library. If you do a search by title and your book is not listed, you can double check by going back to the Books link and selecting the ebrary link in the box below where you search in the catalog. Ebrary is a large collection that updates often so it is good to go there directly and see if there is something new that is not yet listed in our e-book catalog. If you do not find the book in either of those place, unfortunately, the online library does not have that book.

You may also have readings located in your course. Often the instructor will list how to access the reading or might include a link to the reading.

When all else fails or you still are not sure what to do, it is always best to check with your instructor.
