The HSRC's New Textbook Lending Program Launches Fall 2016!

Request your books for Fall 2017 here!  

Struggling to pay for your textbooks? We believe students should never have to choose between buying textbooks and basic necessities like food or medicine. Our new Textbook Lending Program allows eligible students* the opportunity to check out required textbooks at no cost for the entire academic term! The Program starts the first day of class, and operates on a first come, first serve basis. All textbooks must be returned prior to the end of the term. (Please note that failure to return books will result in being banned from participating in this program in subsequent terms.)

Students must already be registered for the class that requires each textbook, and may obtain the required books for only one class per day. (One class, not one textbook: if ART101 requires 1 book, the student gets 1 book that day; if POL405 requires 5 books, the student gets 5 books that day, assuming all of your required books are available.)

*After the Priority Access period, ALL students are eligible and welcome to use the Textbook Lending Program if our remaining books are required for your classes!

In order to access the Textbook Lending Library, please have these items ready:

  1. Your OSU ID.
  2. A printed or digital copy of your OSU course schedule.
  3. A printed or digital copy of your textbook list from the OSU Bookstore’s website or your syllabus.
  4. Priority Access documentation (if applicable).
