Textbooks & Reserves: History of Initiative

In the Fall semester of 2006, the Edmon Low Library launched a pilot program to help students struggling with increasing textbook costs.

The Library originally purchased one textbook for each of the 74 OSU classes that enrolled 250 or more students. In the Spring semester of 2007, the project was expanded to purchase textbooks for classes enrolling 200 or more students. Thanks to continued donor support, the textbook initiative has continued to expand.

Now close to 10 years later, the library offers hundreds of textbooks for any class of 100+ students or required textbooks that costs $100+ or more.
