Textbooks - Student Information

Provide information for students to explain our textbook collection on reserve.

Search Crumb Library collections for your textbooks

Textbooks or required readings could be in one of three collections. Use the search boxes below to see if Crumb library has a copy. Sorry, but you will have to search all three collections to be sure! We do NOT have ALL textbooks, just a selection. Check our holdings early so you can plan on getting personal copies that the library does not own.

1. Search the Crumb Textbook Collection

Search for textbooks by Author or Title (NOT by Course number or Faculty name). The Textbook collection is located at the Crumb Circulation desk - 3 hour loan.

2. Search Reserves

Not all textbooks are in the new Crumb Textbook Collection. Faculty may have put required readings or other materials on Reserve (located at the Circulation Desk):

3. Search BearCat (Library Catalog)

If your textbook is on order, but not yet cataloged, it will display in BearCat. Also, not all textbooks are in the Crumb Textbook Collection or on Reserves. We may have already purchased your required texts for the Stacks Collection simply because they were good books to have for student research. Try searching BearCat:
