CSUN Textbook Program

In an effort to help alleviate the impact of high textbook costs on students, the UNLV Consolidated Students of the University of Nevada (CSUN) provides generous support to the University Libraries to purchase high-cost textbooks required for courses with high enrollment. Thanks to this generous sponsorship the library is able to offer access to more than 400 required textbooks to students. The University Libraries would like to thank CSUN for choosing us as one of the campus organizations they support and for their unwavering advocacy for our students. 

Not all textbooks required in all courses taught at UNLV will be available in the CSUN Textbook Collection. Use the Course Reserves Search Bar and search by Course Name to view availability of textbooks.

The MUS 125 course package Rock 'n Roll Origins and Innovators is not available through the CSUN Textbook Program. Please consult your syllabus or instructor for details on how to arrange access.
