Answer

Generally speaking, the library does not carry most textbooks assigned for classes. These books generally must be purchased or rented from the Wildcat Bookstore. 

That being said, the library does have some textbooks on Reserve or in the regular collection ---

1. Use the Reserve link to look up the book by Course or Instructor's Name.

2. Look up the book by Title or Author or keyword using the regular catalog search

If you still can't find what you need, you can double-check with a librarian at the Reference Desk on the 2nd floor before purchasing.
