Virtual Textbooks

At The Maverick Store, our primary responsibility is to ensure that students have access to the materials they need to succeed in their courses.

In light of the ongoing disruption to on-campus learning, we’ve partnered with our digital course materials platform, VitalSource, and leading publishers to launch VitalSource Helps. This program offers free access to eBooks for students who may have lost access to course materials with the rapid move to distance learning. 

If you previously accessed textbooks via the library, shared a book with a classmate or left your books on campus, visit to access free eBooks through May 25. VitalSource Helps provides access to an expansive catalog of eBooks, but some content may not be available.
