Professors may put a textbook in the reserve section of the library, which allows students to sign it out for a limited amount of time. The loan period for a reserve item is usually 2 or 3 hours, and the item cannot leave the library.

Course reserves are located on the first floor of the library, just to the right of the circulation desk.

As a rule, the library does not purchase textbooks. That being said, there may be an older copy of the textbook that has been donated. Please check our catalogue to see if we have what you are looking for. 

Information relating to the sale of  textbooks can be found via the bookstore
