Exploring Textbook Alternatives at SDCC Library

Check Out the SDCC Library!

See the pages in this guide for tips on finding and using the Library collections. We have many thousands of books/e-books, articles, and videos available to you and your students!

  • Library e-Book Collections: create a reading list with e-books from the Library's collections, or talk to a librarian about purchasing an e-book version of your readings (with multiple user licensing). Link to these in Canvas.
  • Library Article Collections: create a reading list with articles from the Library's electronic database collections and link to them in Canvas.
  • Library Videos Collections: create a playlist of videos that are already captioned and ready to use and link to them in Canvas.

You can check the SDCC Library collections on the library home page for available textbook and course materials options, or talk to your liaison librarian directly about the possibilities!
