Textbooks Collection

This collection aims to increase student access to textbooks, and is funded by the library and supplemented by donations from students and faculty.  Priority in building this collection was given to high enrollment classes, but textbooks are available for classes in nearly every department. If you would like to suggest a textbook purchase to the library, please use our online form.

Textbooks should be requested at the library front desk and can be checked out for a 24-hour period. Four (4) renewals of 6 hours are allowed, as long as there are no holds.

You may take the textbooks outside of the library, but please make sure to return them directly to the front desk.  To find textbook information for your classes, check the My Textbooks page on Eagle.

If the textbook you’re looking for is currently checked out, you may place a hold on it through the library catalog. Once the textbook has been returned, it will be held for you until the library closes that day.
