Textbooks not in yet?

Don't panic!  Check to see if your textbook is at the Library!

Search COURSE RESERVES  to see if your professor has put it on Reserve.  Often faculty will put 1 copy on reserve, in addition to online articles & other required reading.

Search online  from the Library homepage, under "Start Your Research", or select the "Course Reserves" heading in the search box.

Another option, if not on Reserve, is to check our catalog.  The Western Libraries do not automatically purchase textbooks, but it's worth a try.  If we don't have it, select the "Repeat Search in Summit" button at the top of the catalog screen.

Summit is a consortium of over 35 Washington & Oregon college & university libraries that share resources, delivery is about a 3-5 day turn-around.
