In some limited cases. Through the textbook reserve initiative at Rod Library, single copies of some textbooks required for 1000- and 2000-level courses are available for in-library use. Note that editions may differ. Professors may also request and provide text copies to be placed on reserve for other courses. For more information, stop by the Library Services Desk on the main floor.

Beyond these, the library does not usually purchase textbooks, especially new textbooks or the most recent editions professors require. Check out our OneSearch catalog to see if we may have the title available or an alternative edition (use the Course Reserves tab to search by course name, instructor, etc.).

Note that library ebooks are usually limited to one user at a time. Instructors should contact their Collection Strategist Librarian before requiring or recommending a library ebook for a course to determine the level of access available.
