E-books at Riley Library: Other Ebook Sources

A guide to ebook options available at NNU, written for both students and faculty


In an effort to reduce student's cost for textbooks the California State University System has partnered with EDUCAUSE and other organizations to host this website which provides a wealth of resources for online learning resources for your courses. 

Look for the handy "Find Open Textbooks Related to a Book" feature which allows you to search for an open textbook that is similar to one you are already using.  Enter the ISBN of your current print text and it will search open source texts for an alternative option.
