Course Reserves

Does the library have textbooks? Yes, the library has some current textbooks, but not all, on reserve. It depends on whether your instructor placed materials on reserve for student use.

Search CityCat by course or instructor. CityCat will show which library has the course material, whether it is available and also the length of time it is available for check out. Below is an example of a textbook we have on reserve for FASH 22. 

Remote access to eBooks

When you are not on campus you will need to enter barcode number on your student/staff ID in order to access the EbscoHost EBook Collection.
