FAQ - Textbooks

Timely and accurate information about textbooks can contribute to making your term a success. The following information will help you to become an educated consumer, no matter where you choose to buy your textbooks.

Some textbooks are offered as “e-books” and some are offered as “print”. What does this mean?

E-book is an electronic book. Initial access to the book’s content is via a web browser and hardware such as a desktop, laptop, notebook, tablet, or smartphone allowing words or terms to be electronically “searched”. Most content can be saved to the hardware allowing the user to: access it directly including while traveling (if saved to a remote device), highlight content, add personal notes, and save highlighting and notes. Print is a hard-copy book. Some print books also include an electronic component.
Review the publisher’s software and hardware requirements when making a decision on textbook format. Elsevier’s technical requirements are included at the end of these FAQs.
