Are textbooks available online?

Most textbooks are available digitally through the Bookstore’s YUZU platform. Students can purchase digital textbooks from the bookstore website where they will then receive an email on how to access their digital copy. If a textbook is not offered digitally for a course, students should contact their instructors to see if required course materials are available digitally on MySeaport or within Canvas. In the event that a digital format is unavailable and student must purchase a physical textbook, students can continue to place online orders to be shipped to the students’ home directly. The bookstore currently offers Free UPS ground as well as 2nd Day and Next Business Day shipping options for students would who like to pay for expedited shipping.

How do I use the VitalSource Helps program resource?

VitalSource Helps is a program designed to support students who may have lost access to course materials due to a campus moving to distance-learning to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This program is made possible by the leading publishers and campus retailers in US higher education. The program offers free access to tens of thousands of e-books through May 25, 2020 to Spring semester students and instructors at impacted 2 and 4-year non-profit institutions in the US. You may find information on how to access your free e-books here. Please note that this digital resource is available to students that have already purchased their textbook(s) but are not able to access the physical copy; this resource excludes access codes.
