How to Find Your Class Material

Course reserves

Print textbooks

If your faculty member has put a copy of a course reading online or in the Library for you to check out for a limited time, see the link to your course on the left side of this screen.

Then enter the password. (Passwords are available from your instructor, or Ask a Librarian)

Use the search box on the Library's homepage to search for the book title for your class and see if it is available. Then bring the call number of the item to Library Service Desk. 

Things to know: 

1. Textbooks are high-demand items, and another student may have already checked it out. You can look up the item to ensure that it is not already checked out and see the due date.

2. Most items in our seminar and textbook collection only check out for 2 hours.

3. If you check out an item 2 hours before closing, you will get it until the following day. 

If you have any questions or concerns, Ask a Librarian or 925-631-4229 during building hours.
