The Textbook Library is a resource offered by CSES to help undergraduate students access common and specialty engineering textbooks. Textbooks can be borrowed for two weeks at a time from the CSES Office (3390 ME) for FREE!

If you'd like to sign out a book, you can email our Textbook Director at or visit us during office hours.

Our full book list can be seen by clicking the button below. If you're interested in a book that is NOT on our list, you can suggest we add it to our inventory by emailing our Textbook Director at


At the beginning of each semester, CSES opens up its Textbook Trade to help students looking to sell their textbooks do so reliably and efficiently.

If you are looking to buy or sell a textbook, please read the Textbook Trade Procedure. If you want to sell a textbook, please fill out the Textbook Trade Form. Textbooks that're currently for sale, and their prices, can be found in the Textbook Trade Inventory. If you would like to purchase a book, you must contact the seller directly—CSES is simply facilitating the matchmaking part of the process and is not responsible for any damaged books or unsuccessful purchases.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to our Textbook Director at

The Textbook Trade for the 2022-2023 year has begun! Check out the links below or visit Alexander's Office to get in on it!
