Outside View of CCC Bookstore

Students will need to keep their textbooks until the end of the semester. The CCC Bookstore encourages students to return any book that is no longer needed and/or to pick up course materials, if they haven't already done so, for the 2nd 8-week classes before they leave campus.

Resident students who leave campus during the current face-to-face suspension or during spring break will return books by mail at the end of the semester. The Bookstore working on a plan to accommodate this and will send out more information once it's available.

Below are two resources allowing the free use of digital textbooks through May. The majority of our titles used on campus is available for download through these websites with the exception of some custom textbooks and extremely old edition titles. The availability list continues to grow as titles are being added daily and publisher partnerships are increasing. The websites are searchable by textbook title and/or ISBN number. If a student is needing textbook information or assistance navigating these sites, please have them contact us via email at [email protected]

Tips: When registering with these providers, students must use their email address. Downloads are not permitted for those using personal email addresses. To find the needed digital course materials, students can search these sites by using the textbook title and/or ISBN number. Textbook title and ISBN number can be found on their course syllabus. If you need help in registering/navigating these providers or need textbook information, please email [email protected]
