Free Textbook Rentals

Global Studies offers a library where students can rent textbooks for the semester, free of charge. All we ask is that you return the books when you are done so that other students can have the same opportunity.  The library was founded in Spring 2016 by members of Sigma Iota Rho, a Global Studies honor society. It's designed to assist students with textbooks without the costly price.  It is open to any Global Studies major/minor and offers books from various disciplines.  Our list is always growing and we encourage all students to donate to the library at the end of each semester.
