Looking for Textbooks? We've got tips for you!

Go to The Bookstore
The SFSU Bookstore has extended hours during the first two weeks of school. But why wait in line when you can buy online? Go to

Use the Library
- Search the library’s hardcopy reserves at and find them in HSS 102. If your professor has not put a copy on reserve for you, suggest they loan their extra copy to the Library’s Reserves Services.

- In general, our Library doesn’t buy textbooks. However, the LINK+ catalog includes the collections of many libraries in the region, and they may loan out the book you are looking for. Request books through Link+ and they get delivered for pickup at HSS 102.

Try Textbook Rental:
Renting textbooks for the semester might be cheaper than buying them. Try these sites:
