Does the Library have my textbooks?
The Library does not purchase textbooks. Textbooks are updated much more frequently than the traditional library book, thus making them difficult to keep up-to-date. On the slim chance that we may have acquired the textbook for your class, it would be listed in the Online Catalog. To check, click the Books tab on the library homepage, type in the exact title of the textbook, and switch the search type to Title. Most textbooks have generic names, so be sure to compare editor and publisher. And most importantly, check the edition. New textbook editions are published every few years – content and page numbering will be different in previous editions!
Ask your professor if they have or can put the textbook on reserve in the library. Browse the library's Course Reserves to see if your professor has placed the textbook or other reading materials on reserve. A "reserved" item can usually only be read in the library.
