Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the library is not currently offering print course reserves for the Fall 2020 semester. However, library staff are happy to help faculty explore options for providing electronic course reserves within Blackboard. Faculty can see this link for more information.


The library generally does not keep textbooks for online classes on Reserve unless the book is the same as one being used in a traditional class.

You can check the online Course Reserves which is located on the library's website under Course Reserves or call the library to check and see if we have the textbook.

  • Metro Library - 595-7172
  • West Library -   595-8010
  • Northeast Library - 595-7501
  • Southeast Library - 595-7701

We typically do not carry ebook versions of textbooks either, due to licensing issues from the publishers and the fact eTexbooks come with course-specific assignments and test banks instructors can use. However, if there is a chance your class's textbook or required reading is a popular book or work in the public domain, we might have it as a general ebook. You can search for ebooks in our Discovery catalog search on the library homepage

**Note: online textbooks are available for purchase only at the Northeast Campus Bookstore. The Northeast Campus Library does not necessarily have online textbooks on reserve.
