TextSelect is a project of the Mason Libraries to help address the cost of required textbooks. The Libraries' collection now includes required textbooks that exceed $50 for the following 100, 200, 300 & 400 level required courses:
- Required General Education classes
- Required School of Business classes
- Required Conflict Resolution classes
- Required Economics classes
- Required Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Health and Nursing classes
TextSelect also includes textbooks under $50.00 if they are already in the Libraries' collection. In addition to the undergraduate titles included in TextSelect, the Libraries are able to fund the inclusion of selected graduate-level textbooks in the subject areas listed above. Textbooks are on 2-hour reserve in the Gateway Library, Fairfax Campus, except for courses held on the Arlington or Prince William Campuses. Students can locate TextSelect textbooks in the Mason Catalog or in the Course Reserve Catalog.
If you would like to suggest the purchase of a textbook that does not fall under the parameters of the TextSelect program, please fill out the form below and the Libraries will consider your request.
