Open Educational Resources and Zero-Cost Course Materials

Pollak Library's E-Textbook List


Every semester the library compiles a list of the required books that are available in our library. We pull this data by reviewing the information that faculty add to the course catalog. Many times these ebooks are licensed in a way that allows for multiple users to access the book at the same time, making it accessible to multiple students in the same class.

We strongly recommend that you check this list for your courses.

Searching for Course Materials

You can use OneSearch to search in the library collection for books and ebooks.

On the advanced search page, select "Books and Media CSUF" to limit your search results to Pollak's materials. 

  • In the search boxes, you can search for the book title, author, or book ISBN that is listed on your syllabus or in Canvas.
