2024 Summer AL$ Library Textbook List

This page provides a list of AL$-participating textbooks being assigned in CSUDH courses this semester which are currently available for use through the University Library’s collection.

The list is organized by department and course number, making it easier for students to locate the materials they need for class. Each resource includes a direct link to the book in our library catalog, ensuring that students have easy access to the resources they need to succeed in the course without breaking the bank. The filter options -- by Course Instructor, Book Title, or ISBN -- will also help students to quickly find the resources that are most relevant to their needs. For more information about using library books and ebooks, check out our guide here.

We hope that this webpage serves as a valuable resource for all CSUDH students and helps them to succeed in their studies, while minimizing the financial burden of purchasing course materials.
