Some (not all) textbooks are available on reserve at the library where they can be checked out for 2 hours at a time. Use the Reserves search box above to find out if your textbook is available this way.
Don't see your textbook listed on reserve? Check the general Cruzcat catalog (search box also above) with a title search. Your textbook may be in the library but not yet on the course reserve list. If you still don't find it, consider asking your instructor to put a copy of the textbook on reserve in the library for your class.
Rentals can be much cheaper than buying the textbook. See if your textbook has a paper or online rental option.
The Textbook Lending Library (TLL) program is designed to assist Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) students in obtaining required textbooks that they would not be able to purchase on their own. For more info and to apply for textbook assistance, use the link above.
