SGA Textbook Resource Program
WHAT IS THE TEXTBOOK RESOURCE PROGRAM?
The Textbook Resource Program is an SGA program that helps PVCC students exchange textbooks through a lending process. The program intends to help all students to obtain their textbooks/course materials, especially those who are unable to acquire their required material. This is an SGA-run program managed by the SGA Textbook Resources (TR) Department.
WHAT IS THE TEXTBOOK RESOURCES (TR) DEPARTMENT?
The SGA TR Department manages, collects, and distributes the textbooks. The department consists of a director, assistant director, collector, distributor, and SGA members. The director of the TR department serves on the executive board and is responsible to maintaining the program.

TERMS & CONDITIONS
The Textbook Resource Program is designated to help students who are unable to afford their textbooks and course materials. The efficiency of the program depends on the availability of the textbooks and donations from individuals. The Student Government Association oversees this program though the Department of the Textbook Resources Program. Requests are based on first-come, first-served. Below are the terms and conditions for this program:
- The SGA TR Department will do its best to provide students with their required materials. Since the program depends on donations from groups and individuals, it does not guarantee to satisfy all the requests.
- The SGA will serve the students based on the date and time of the submission.
- Applicants must be active students at PVCC and enrolled in classes during the semester.
- The textbooks provided to the students shall be returned to the program at the end of the course. Failure to return a book will disqualify the applicant for future semesters.
- The TR Department will be responsible for updating the list of available books on a frequent basis, ensuring that students have the most accurate information possible.
- Book lists will be presented no less than one week before the start of any given semester, at which point they are considered available.
- Books will be available for student pick up during the first week of classes. Again, this is on a first-come, first-served basis and no book is guaranteed.
- Students are limited to borrowing one book per semester, but there is no limit to how many semesters a student may apply for.
- All donations will be accepted, however, if a book is no longer required for any courses at PVCC or has no use in PVCC courses, said book will be donated through another channel.
