FGCU Library staff have been busy looking at the list of textbooks for next semester and have already prepared over 700 lists of required texts that the library already owns. These may be physical books that will be on reserve in the library or e-books that are easily accessible online. 

If you are an instructor, check and see if we have already made you a course reading list . If there is a reading list for your course already, be sure to share with your students by activating your lists in your Canvas courses. You can easily add more books, videos, articles, and website to any pre-made reading lists to make them your own.  If you don’t have a pre-made list, you can always create one! Add information about your required readings (even if the library doesn’t have them) or make lists of recommended/ supplemental readings.

If you are a student, check and see if there are reading lists for a course you are taking (or are interested in taking).  Your course textbook could be available for free! 

Course Reading Lists are available for any FGCU faculty member to create. These course readings lists can be fully integrated into Canvas, making it easy for students to connect with course readings and resources. Course Reading Lists can be used to create low-cost or zero-cost courses using library resources or Open Education Resources (OER). See our complete guide to Course Reading Lists to learn about the possibilities.
