Need help finding or using your textbook?


You can find out which textbooks you need for class by visiting the online STLCC Bookstore. Once there, you can Log In to see the books needed for the courses you've registered for. If you haven't registered for courses yet, use the Find Your Course option to search for a particular course.


Your instructor has experience using the textbook assigned for your course, and should be your first point of contact if you are having difficulties using your e-textbook.

If your instructor cannot resolve the issue, you may contact the STLCC IT Help Desk for technical issues, or the STLCC Bookstore for access code issues.

Please note that the Library cannot provide access codes for textbooks purchased through the Bookstores.
