How do I find my textbooks online?
Select the quarter for which you are purchasing books under the "Term Name". Then you will need to select the "department", "course", and "section" from your class schedule. Once you have found all the courses you have enrolled in, click on the "Find Books" button on the right. All titles that are available online are also available in the store. Please note that not all instructors require a textbook for their courses. If you cannot find the section number or the section is not listed as All, the instructor has not submitted an order to the Highline Bookstore or the class could possibly be canceled.
