We MIGHT have the textbook for your class in our collection. The WSU Libraries don't usually purchase textbooks. However, we often have multiple copies of classic novels or studies commonly used as course readings, and instructors frequently place copies of textbooks on reserve as well.

To find out if your instructor placed your textbook on reserve, you can search our reserves page. You can search by book title, course number, or instructor last name. If you find your book, look for the number next to the title of the book. Bring this number to the circulation desk, where the reserve materials are held. All reserve materials have various borrowing periods (sometimes only a couple of hours), so please verify how long you may have the book for before taking it with you. Learn more about how to search for course reserves.

You may also check our collections for your book. Just go to Search It, and look up the book by title or author. If we do not have the book at WSU, you may be able to request it via Summit or interlibrary loan. Use your ILLiad account for Interlibrary Loan.
