The Library has lots of ebooks you can use, to practice and improve your understanding of English grammar and usage. A few examples are listed here.
The Library has many textbooks used in English courses. Current textbooks are in Reserves (2-hour checkout). Older textbooks might be available for longer (2-week checkouts).
To see if we have your textbook, type the title of the book into OneSearch (the big search box on the Library homepage), or ask a librarian.
