Q: Sorry to bug you! I realize the library has it as an e-book. Is there any way to get a print copy of it? I couldn't read an entire book on my computer!

A: Thanks for the request. Unfortunately, our Psychology book budget does not usually permit us to purchase alternative formats for books at the moment. However, you should be able to obtain a reader-friendly *print* version of this book using interlibrary loan. In fact, you can request any e-book you wish to read in print via interlibrary loan. The request form can be found here: http://www.lib.sfu.ca/find/document-delivery/request-form
Hope that helps!

Best wishes,
