Finding Textbooks

The Library typically does not purchase textbooks. Therefore, textbooks in the Library are primarily ones placed on reserve by instructors. These books are generally kept on the shelves behind the Circulation Desk. To find a textbook, please click on the Catalog and choose Course Reserve tab.

To perform a search:

1. Select an item from one of the following drop down lists: Instructor, Department or Course.

2. Click the search button to begin your search.

3. Select a record you wish to view by clicking on it. Each record includes the location, call number and status of the item. If the book is available, you will need to go to the Circulation Desk and ask one of the staff there for the book.

Most textbooks can be checked out for two hours for use in the Library.

There might be an early edition of the textbooks in the Library's book stack, which can be checked out for three weeks. Please click on the catalog link to find books.
