The Radford University Libraries' e-textbook collection is the result of a collaboration between the University bookstore, the Virtual Library of Virginia (VIVA), and the University Libraries. These titles were requested by university faculty during the 2022-23 academic year, either through the bookstore or through the VIVA Faculty Textbook Portal. As a result, their use in spring 2023 saved Radford students money by eliminating or lessening the need to purchase physical textbooks.

All titles in this collection are permanent - they won't disappear like some ebooks do - and offer unlimited access. We are currently waiting for the titles requested for the new semester and will update the collection once we have that list.

The Vimeo video, narrated by McConnell Library's Lisa Dinkle, explains how to use the "canned" search through the Radford University Textbooks button. You may also download the entire spreadsheet, which contains permalinks for embedding into D2L and your syllabi.
