BibliU e-Textbook Platform

BibliU is an e-textbook borrowing system that the CSUN University Library is providing for free to many CSUN classes.

High use textbooks identified from the print textbooks the Library normally purchases each semester with Campus Quality Fee (CQF) funds that are available in the BibliU database were selected While BibliU will not provide access to all textbooks needed by all CSUN students, and the funding for BibliU, which is provided by earmarked federal funds for higher education due to Covid is not enough to cover all costs, the hope is that this service will help many students who normally depend upon the Library’s print textbooks on reserve.

To access BibliU e-textbooks and other electronic resources for your courses:

  1. Search by textbook title in OneSearch or browse/search by course/instructor in Course Reserves
  2. Click on the link provided for the title and enter your CSUN user ID and password when prompted to access the e-textbook.

Students will be able to borrow e-textbooks from BibliU while funding is available. However, once a student borrows the BibliU e-textbook, they may use it as many times as needed up to the end of Spring 2022 semester, at which time access to the title ends. 

See Course Reserves Options for additional sources for textbooks, including lower cost options offered by the CSUN Campus Store.
