Generally, the policy of the library is to not purchase textbooks. However, we still do occasionally have copies of textbooks in the collection (although they are often older editions). To check if the library owns a copy of your textbook, search for it as you would any other book via the library catalog.

You may also want to check Course Reserves and see if your professor put a copy of your text on reserve.
