For fall semester 2015, McCain Library will continue the practice of putting some of the most expensive required textbooks on reserve, thanks to gift funds for this purpose. Note: not all required textbooks used in ASC courses are available in this way. These costly textbooks (not easily obtained as used, retailing for $100+, especially in sciences and social sciences) are intended to be available to the most students possible, so they may be borrowed for two hours at a time, for use in the library (only). Ask for them by title at the Circulation Desk.
Faculty are continually adding books to library Reserve shelves as everyone gets ready for classes to begin (including ones that are not very expensive), so more titles may be available. Check back closer to August 26.
If you’re off-campus, for current information, search by book title, by course number (e.g., PSY101) or by professor’s last name in the SOPHIA library catalog under Course Reserves (right hand side of the screen).
