Textbook Project: Home

An affordability and accessibility initiative

MSU Libraries Textbook Project

The Missouri State University Libraries recognize that the high cost of books is burdensome. This project is intended to help students more easily access required books. We have purchased and collected donations for courses with high drop and high fail rates. These books will be placed on course reserves at the Duane G. Meyer Library. Look below to see if any of your courses are covered under this project.

For some of the classes included in the project, there may be additional required texts that have not been purchased. Also, some of these books are accompanied by an access code for supplemental online materials. We cannot purchase access to these additional materials. Make sure to check with your professor to make sure that you have access to all of the books and other materials you'll need for class.
