The library will have your textbook if your instructor put it on reserve for your class. Because textbooks are published in new editions so often, the library can't buy them. Instead your instructor will loan the library his or her personal copy of the textbook to place on reserve so that it's available to as many students as possible. In addition to textbooks, instructors place other types of materials on reserve like back tests, practice test questions, required readings, and more.

If you know the title of your book you can search for it in the WorldCat - Find Books & More from the MJC Library & Learning Center homepage.

If you don't know the title of your book you can go to Class Reserves from MJC Library & Learning Center homepage and search by using your course name, your instructor's name, department, or your course ID number.

For questions about textbooks on reserve please call the circulation desk at 209-575-6228.
