University of Oklahoma students will have in-library access to 800 textbooks for about 250 general education courses, university President David Boren said Monday.
He said the initiative aims to help students with textbook costs. The books, which number only a few for each course, can be viewed by appointment for two-hour periods at the Bizzell Memorial Library.
The textbook library is a result of a $200,000 fund established by Boren. Faculty members also are encouraged to avoid requiring new editions of textbooks for their courses if earlier editions, which can be purchased at used book prices, are adequate.
