RedShelf is responding to the Covid-19 outbreak with a temporarily free initiative.This initiative will provide free access to digital textbooks to students from non-profit, semester-based colleges and universities through May 25th. Search for free ebooks here.
***Note!: RedShelf seems to be much more problematic for accessing free etextbooks than VitalSource Bookshelf. Until this is resolved, Milner Library recommends using VitalSource.***
