Course reserves is the area in the library where textbooks and other course materials are kept so that students can use them. On the library's Web site, you'll click Textbooks & More to search for course reserve materials. You can search using your instructor's name, your course ID number, or course name.

If you know the title of your book you can search for it in WorldCat library catalog.

The library will have your textbook and many other types of course-related materials if your instructor put them 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.

For questions about textbooks on reserve please call 209-575-6228.
