Open Access to Textbooks for Students

OATS logoWhat are OATS?

OATS is a collection of print and electronic textbooks and study guides the library collects as additional support to course-assigned texts.
The print books are for all students to use in the library. If you need access to these materials outside of the library, you can scan or copy from any of the library’s stations. All OATS electronic textbooks are available for download.
Both the print and electronic textbooks are searchable using the search box below.

We Need Your Help!

OATS offers students access to textbooks to enhance their learning. For everyone to benefit from these books, please enjoy them in the library.
When you’re finished, you can return them in one of the “Return Books” bins, at the Research Help Desk, or at the checkout desk. If books start disappearing, everyone loses out!

Let’s support one another’s learning by using OATS responsibly – it’s the Mustang Way!
