  • University Bookstore for buying and renting textbooks.
  • A Lending Library was established in the Spring 2022.
  • Book Scholarship for students that have identified financial need.
  • Reserve textbooks for student use at the library.


The programs are a collaboration between the Library, Financial Aid, the Student Accounts Office, the University Bookstore, the Office for Student Retention and the Office for Students First.
