The library purchases at least 1 copy of most required course textbooks. Textbooks are available on a first-come, first-served basis for a 2-hour loan from the Library Services Desk located on the main floor of the John L. Haar Library. Textbooks checked out within 3 hours of the library closing will be due back within the first hour of the library opening the next day.
Rent Your Textbook
The following sites offer rental options for many popular textbooks:
Ensure the book you are buying is the correct edition. If unsure, ask your instructor.
Check to see if the book includes an access code for online content. If your instructor says the code is needed, and your code had been used or is expired, you'll be stuck buying a new code, which can be more costly than buying a new textbook.
Before Buying an Older Edition:
Check with your instructor. The content can change between editions and you might be missing out on important information!
