Despite substantial budget reductions during the last two years, the UCSD Libraries continue to offer print and electronic course reserves services at no charge to faculty and students. More than 2,300 courses were supported in multiple formats last year-text, image, audio, and media-and processing is now underway for the Fall 2010 term.
If you are exploring new books for your classes and would like to offer your students the convenience of an electronic version, we encourage you to search in Roger, UCSD Libraries' online catalog. By selecting the "Electronic Materials" tab above the search box, you can search for e-books by keyword, title, author, subject, or call number. The UC San Diego Libraries offer a variety of e-book options. If you don't find the books you're looking for and want to request new titles for the collection, these will be purchased as e-books whenever that is an option unless your request specifies that the print version is preferred. Please consult your subject librarian http://libraries.ucsd.edu/contacts/subject-specialists.html for complete information about what is available in your discipline.
