If we own your textbook in print and it appears on the bookstore's list of required textbooks, we automatically place that book on Course Reserve. We also commonly place earlier editions of textbooks on Reserve, especially if we do not own the latest edition. We may also have your textbook as an ebook.
You can search for your textbook in several ways. You can search Discovery Search for the title (and author, if it has a short, common title like Biology) should reveal what we have and where you can access it. You can also search for the textbook by course number or by instructor in our reserve module.
We do not own every textbook required every semester, but we do take requests to purchase ones we don't have.
