Library books and Textbooks in the time of Covid-19

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, none of the libraries are lending materials. However, there are options for you to get digital textbooks for free for this semester only.

RedShelf Access:

  1. ​Visit RedShelf’s login page for RedShelf Responds. You must create an account with your institutional (lewisu.edu) email address.
  2. Once you confirm your email, you can sign in and search for books by title, ISBN, or author in the ‘borrow your text’ search box.
  3. Once you find a title, click on details for the title you want and look for the ADD TO MY SHELF option. That will open a read now option – and also put the book on your “shelf” to return to again.

If you do not see the textbook you need there – this is another option:
