Most Core Curriculum texts are available free of charge on the interweb. On this page, you'll find links to online versions of the major texts discussed in the two main Core Curriculum classes, Literature Humanities and Contemporary Civilization.

Free Culture at Columbia, a student group, has compiled the core texts and distributed the package on USB drives. The package also can be downloaded here. The group has many links to texts on this page.
