Generally speaking, the libraries do not have textbooks available for long-term borrowing.
However, instructors will sometimes place a textbook on reserve at your campus library. Material on reserve may not be taken out of the library and has a time limit for use, usually 2 hours. To find out the check-out restrictions and/or to check-out the item, you will need to contact the campus where it is located. To determine which campus has the specific edition of the book you are looking for, you will need to search the library catalog or contact the library you wish to use. There is a brief video following these instructions which may help.
Here is how to use the library catalog to find a textbook on reserve (if it has been placed on reserve):
- Go to the library’s website or simply use the link below.
- On the navigation bar, select "Tutorials and Academic Support" and then select “Course Reserves”.
- Enter the name or course number of your class and click “Search”.
- The results should help you locate textbooks and other materials that your instructor has put on reserve for class (such as required readings).
