The New School does not have an official bookstore where our students can purchase their own textbooks at this time.
The library is committed to making copies of all requested textbooks and course materials available, however, this work is complicated by textbook publishers who do not provide electronic purchasing options for libraries. Subject Librarians may assist instructors with exploring and identifying textbook alternatives.
- Can the library acquire all course textbooks?
- What are alternatives to traditional course textbooks?
- Is my textbook available as an ebook?
Using the Course Reserves service ensures that the library is able to provide students a free option to access materials when available. Please consult the Library FAQ on textbooks if you have more questions.
