The Library has many print and electronic books available to support your course, and electronic books are available off-campus 24/7!
Some books will provide a helpful overview of a particular topic, while other books will provide the necessary depth and detail. Both will help you start, progress and complete any assignment.
The library works hard to ensure, where possible, that the most recent edition of any book is available.
Some chapters from books will be available electronically via online reading lists on your SOL units.
Always check your unit reading list for recommendations!
