Some textbooks are on Course Reserve. Course Reserve materials are typically available at the library for in-library checkout only.
Some limited items may be available digitally-- if your Course Reserve text is available online, it will be inside your online course shell (typically in Canvas)-- please contact your instructor to see if this applies to your class.

Textbooks and other course materials are expensive, and COVID-19 has affected many of us financially. If you need assistance, please apply for this emergency funding grant. The grant awards student funding for Course Materials (textbooks, supplies, access codes...) among other emergency needs.
Other items this grant can assist with include: food; housing; technology (computers, headphones, webcams...); medical expenses; child care; utilities (electricity, internet, water/sewer, gas...); transportation (car payment, gas, bus fare...); and more...
Public libraries often have very different collections than academic libraries, but sometimes you might just find what you need! Use the links below to try searching the public library for your textbook.
