TEXTBOOKS and OTHER SUPPORT MATERIALS

As classes transition to an online environment, many of you may be looking for the e-book version of your text.  During this time, you can check both VitalSource and RedShelf for free access.  You will have to create an account using your WCU email.  Once created, you can search for you textbook by title and by author's last name.
