To promote student access to curriculum materials, the Libraries make limited purchases of textbooks each Fall and Spring semester and places them on Reserve for a specific course and semester at the appropriate campus library.
Textbooks are purchased based on library collection policies, recommendations, and those which will make the highest impact on student research and study. Textbooks already owned by the library can also be placed on Reserve according to the policies and requests during the current semester in which the course is in session.
How do I find a textbook for my course?
How long can I check out a textbook?
Textbooks placed on Reserve can be checked out for a 4-hour period and can be taken outside of the library.
