Pathways to Open Access

FREE TEXTBOOK CATALOG

This guide features textbooks that UMass Lowell subscribes to via Knovel, EBSCO, E-Brary, and other vendors as well as open textbooks. Librarian Margaret Manion researched a wide range of potential texts. The links to each subject area are on the left.

You can use these books at no charge to supplement or replace a course textbook.

Please note: before adopting one of these books as a course text, please check with Margaret Manion to verify that the e-book will continue to be available all semester, and there are no limitations on simultaneous users or page downloads.

Please contact Margaret with suggestions for additional areas where we can discover and share free textbook options.
