Frequently Asked Questions


I don’t have my course textbook. Do you know where I might find one?

Textbooks can be expensive but are really important to support your course material. We’ve been able to identify a few solutions:

  1. Georgian Store is open for online orders
  2. Search Facebook groups for used books: Orillia Georgian College Book Exchange, Georgian College Barrie Book Swap, Georgian College Used Textbooks. Students post their used texts or post as wanted
  3. The library has an open educational resource (OER) guide that offers a search engine and suggestions for some subjects. These might not be your textbook but an OER could have the same or similar content.
