Accessing textbooks during Spring 2021

Students will not have access to physical reserve textbooks during the Spring 2021 semester. The library is providing a scan-and-email service in place of physical access. Please use this linked form to request pages or chapter(s) from a reserve textbook. Please use the Ask Us! button at the top of the page to request assistance with this.

To determine whether the library owns a physical copy of your textbook, please follow the instructions below.

How do I know if the library has the textbook for my course?

There are two ways to find out if the library has your course textbook. In the Books, eBooks, & Media Catalog, if you search for the book by title, author, or keyword, you can see in the results list that the book is in the Reserves location.



You can also use the Textbooks search on the Library homepage. You cannot search by title here; you must type in the course name or course code, or browse all courses alphabetically.
