PUL will attempt to obtain or digitize a copy to place on course reserves. If we cannot, we may be able to digitize a portion of the book as copyright permits. See How to Submit Requests. NOTE: There are many publications that lack an electronic version, or one isn’t for sale to libraries.
E-Textbooks are rarely available to academic libraries regardless of discipline. When they are available, they are often restricted by digital rights management software or are very costly. A list of some open educational resources can be found here: https://libguides.princeton.edu/c.php?g=1010202&p=7383368.
Materials from certain places, such as Latin America, maybe more accessible than others. For more detailed information, contact your Subject Librarian. PUL is committed to providing available e-content, but negotiations with publishers take time, and technological considerations can make it difficult to make large collections of eBooks and other resources available quickly.
Due to COVID, many publishers/providers have expanded the content they offer electronically, but availability still varies by discipline and content type (e.g. eTextbooks). As always, Subject Librarians are the best resource to help find materials.
