Library Search User Guide: Course Reserves

Learn how to get the most out of the library's search feature

Find your textbooks

To search for a course textbook, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the library search bar and change the search bar filter to "Course Reserves".


  1. Use the search bar to search by the name of your course, your professor’s name, or the title of the textbook.

  2. Write down the call number of the book (the string of letters and numbers listed under the title) and provide it to the worker at the circulation desk. You can then check out the book to use in the library only, for up to 2 hours. Return the book on time to avoid fines.

Please note that we only hold copies of required undergraduate textbooks and a small number of graduate textbooks.
