Q. Can I check out textbooks on reserve?

Students

Physical textbook checkouts will not be available Spring 2021, however, we are trying to provide online access to as many textbooks and course materials as possible. Please check the Course Reserves list to see if your textbook is already online and available. If you don't see your course, use the Course Reserve Request Form to request your book. See the Students Continuity Planning Guide for more information.

Faculty

We will work with you to get online access to your course materials. There are three options for making course materials available through the library at this time:

  1. eBook requests (which the library purchases)
  2. Accessible scans of textbook chapters (the Accessibility Resource Center can scan up to 15% of a textbook, or more if the instructor presents permission from the publisher).
  3. Assistance finding free, online open educational resources to replace your textbook (support from Cyril Oberlander, Library Dean)

Please see the Faculty Continuity Planning Guide for more information and use the Course Reserve Request Form to submit eBook and textbook scan requests.
