The University Book Store partners with eBook provider, CourseSmart to provide students an economical (and green) alternative to print textbooks. Stop in Tech Connection to try out the new CourseSmart eReader with better highlights and bookmarks, improved notes management, and multiple viewing options.

How it works

  1. If a textbook is offered as an eBook, there will be a blue slip next to the textbook.
  2. When you're ready to check out, bring the blue slip to the cash register.
  3. There is a redemption code on the receipt that allows you to access the purchased eBook so make sure not to lose it!
  4. Go to coursesmart.com and enter the redemption code. (Note: you'll need to create a CourseSmart account).
  5. Follow the instructions on coursesmart.com to get your eBook
