Most courses that had a printed textbook in the past use eTexts or Digital Learning Resources (DLR) now, so your classes probably do too. 

To find your eTexts or Digital Learning Resources:

  1. Log into Blackboard, and open your course
  2. Find and select eText (or DLR) in the blue navigation menu on the left side of the screen

  3. ​When the page opens, click on eText again

  4. The cover page of the eText should appear. You can then click on this book to access the eText (or Digital Learning Resources (DLRs)) 

The eTexts are online version of textbooks. The DLRs are additional materials that can help you in the course, such as slideshows, lab manuals, videos or Study Ware that contain sample quizzes and tools for online practice and reinforcement of the material you are studying. 

If your eText is NOT available from this link on the blue sidebar of your Blackboard course, then that class probably uses a separate website for your textbook readings, learning activities and quizzes - such as MindTap or Cengage Brain or Evolve. Your instructor will provide a link to it and a code to login for the first time, usually near your assignment for the week in Blackboard.
