Thanks to a sizeable donation from the SRJC Associated Students, Doyle Library now has three Kindle Fire e-readers available for student check-out at the fourth floor Reserve Desk. Aware of the rising cost of textbooks, the Associated Students responded by requesting that high-demand texts and books be purchased for student use. The donation was used to purchase the Kindles and the following popular items:
Art History, 4th ed.

Call number: N5300 .S923 2011
Chemistry: The Molecular Nature of Matter and Change, 6th ed.

The Kindles are treated just like other textbooks for purposes of course reserve check-outs. They have a loan period of two hours, and need to be used inside the library. The standard late fee of $1.00 per hour up to $10.00 per day applies.
If you need one of these popular texts or books, consider borrowing a Kindle and read the e-version.
