Library electronic resources

Several of the major textbook publishers have joined together to provide free eTextbooks to students working from off-campus, in response to COVID-19.

Many of the textbooks being used by Wagner students are available by going to the Wagner College Bookstore site at https://www.bkstr.com/wagnerstore, which is providing access, in partnership with Redshelf.

Once students have set up their Redshelf account, they can log in and search for their eTextbooks by title.  Access to the books is provided through May 25, and each student can use up to 7 free books.  More information can be found at https://studentresponse.redshelf.com/.

The Library staff has compiled an excellent list of resources that can be found on the Coronavirus resources page.
