For assistance with E-Textbook technical issues please contact the Blackboard Tech Support team at  techsupport@columbiasouthern.edu  or (877) 399-1063. Note: access to a course E-Textbook will be available on the course start date, but not before.

TEXTBOOKS

For questions about textbook shipping or receiving, please contact the CSU Bookstore at bookstore@columbiasouthern.edu or 877-323-4474.
The CSU Library is completely online and does not have physical course textbooks for student use. For this reason the CSU Library does not house course textbooks. Please contact the CSU Bookstore for further assistance at bookstore@columbiasouthern.edu or 877-323-4474.
A course designated as an ILR course does not have a textbook.  Instead, students are assigned a variety of readings within each unit.  Check the unit Study Guide to access links to that unit's required and suggested reading assignments. For questions about course reading assignments or other resources in courses, please defer to the instructor of that course.
