Library DIY: Looking for a Textbook

Find how to locate a book, eBook, and articles, evaluate and cite sources, and access library services.

I Am Looking For A Textbook For My Class

B.D Owens Library usually does not carry textbooks for courses, but you can search for the book title in the library catalog. Often textbooks have more than one edition, so you may want to check the publication year of the book you need. 

If your professor has put books or materials on reserve for your course, you can find them here. Just search the name of your professor or the name of the course to see the list of course reserve materials.

If you think you should have received this textbook through our Textbook Services, contact them here.

You can also visit the Bearcat Bookstore to see if they have the textbook that you need. They have purchase and rental options for books. The bookstore can be found on the second floor of The Union.
