Can I borrow my textbook through Interlibrary loan?

No. Textbooks for classes should be purchased through normal venues. The Interlibrary Loan office cannot order textbooks.

The Campus Bookstore sells textbooks for your classes and is available online to order books. It is located in the Tucker Student Center. 


Here are some other options for you to try.

  • Check to see if the textbook is on reserve for your class:  Some professors may put a personal copy of the book on reserve.  You need to know your class and professor's name. Come to the library circulation desk and we will look up the reserve item.  Be sure to have your ID with you.

  • Type the book title into Google to see if it’s available via Google Books
