Answer

Academic libraries do not routinely purchase all textbooks.

Most textbooks for Gen Ed classes are available for short-term borrowing at the Reserves desk on the lower level.  Reserve books, including Gen Ed texts, circulate for a limited amount of time. Consult the Reserves staff for details.

For classes other than Gen Ed, your professor may have placed the texts on Reserve.  Check the library catalog.

Some textbooks are available to borrow from the regular library stacks.  Check the library catalog for availability.

Just for you, the library created video tutorials with tips on using the catalog.
