SURVEY TEXTBOOK SUPPLEMENTS OR REPLACEMENTS FROM THE LIBRARY

Concise, level-appropriate topic overviews from academic encyclopedias and other reference works can provide excellent supplements or replacements to textbook chapters. This content is free to students because it has already been purchased or licensed by the SHSU Library.

If you don't like the way your preferred textbook addresses one topic, a substitute can replace that chapter. Or a full array of content selections can be custom-curated to fit your syllabus in place of an off-the-shelf textbook.

Need help? Your subject librarian can help to curate appropriate content that fits your syllabus and course goals.
