Technology Spotlight-New app and website for e-books

Using technology in education is becoming more and more common among students and instructors. E-books or books in alternative format are a common accommodation for students at CPCC. Here are some new resources that may be helpful when locating an electronic version of a book:


This app allows for textbook retrieval from multiple devices. It is used by the CPCC bookstore and can be used with financial aid.


This website is an option for students who do not use financial aid. It keeps a library of rental books that the student can access until the book rental expires. Some books have “unlimited” rentals.

If you are approved to receive books in alternative format/e-books and are having difficulty locating an electronic version of your book, please contact Alysia Leak in AssistiveTechnology and your Disability Counselor for more assistance.
