For Students: How to Find Required Textbooks

For Faculty: Course Reserves

Each semester, Library staff examine the list of faculty textbook requests. We move any library-owned title to our Course Reserve collection in order to benefit a higher number of students. 

Faculty are strongly encouraged to donate copies of textbooks for this highly circulating collection.

Students can ask for these textbooks by title at the Service Desk. Including the call number in your syllabus can be helpful.

Additional materials such as course readings, DVDs, and CDs can also be placed on reserve.

For questions about course reserves, please contact Tim Finnigan (585) 245-5192
