In collaboration with the Minnesota State Student Association (MSSA), the Bookstore Advisory Committee, Barnes & Noble Bookstore, Library Services has implemented a new program to help students deal with the high cost of purchasing textbooks. A grant of $5000 from Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) was used to purchase textbooks to be placed on two-hour reserve. Careful consideration was given to the selection of textbooks, with the majority of the books costing between $80 and $100 and used by students in general education classes. Over 2,750 students in 16 class sections have the opportunity to benefit from the program.
Textbooks are conveniently located at the Circulation Desk directly inside the main entrance of the Memorial Library. The available titles and related classes are listed on the Library web page (lib.mnsu.edu; select Course Reserves). The textbooks may be found by searching MAVERICKTEXTBOOKPROGRAM for course instructor, course name and/or under department. The textbook list is also available at the Library’s Circulation / Reserve desk. Books may be borrowed for two hours at a time (renewable based on demand). The best news is that there is no charge for the use of Maverick Textbooks.
