STUDENT TEXTBOOK LENDING LIBRARY

The Student Library Loan System is collection of donated textbooks from current students enrolled in a diverse course load. This collection of books is housed in the University Library, and can only be utilized by students who are considered need-based. These students would be allowed to take out the textbook for a certain period of time outside of the library for their own study needs. This program assists students who have financial constraints take advantage of their liberal arts education in the same way as students who do not have these obstacles.

Through annual CBL Course Development Seminars, one-on-one consultations, and facilitated meetings with potential community partners, the Center helps faculty apply CBL pedagogies and best practices effectively to their courses while also ensuring that our community partners see real benefit to their organizations as a result.
