Library Textbook collection … now expanded!

January 14, 2020

Recognizing the financial burden of purchasing textbooks, and hoping to ease the load for students, the Library introduced a reserve textbook collection in 2018, and we’ve been adding to it every semester since then!

When deciding which textbooks to purchase, these are the criteria we consider:

  • high cost (over $100)
  • first-year or introductory course
  • course with a large enrollment

Reserve textbooks are available for 2-hour loans from the Library Desk or the Information Desk on the 3rd Floor of DSB (for those classes offered at the DSB). Just bring your iCard to borrow a textbook.

Select textbooks are available for the following courses:

  • ACCT 204
  • ANTH 200 & 201
  • ART 201 & 305
  • BADM 110 & 132
  • BIOL 217 & 218
  • BUS 201 & 311
  • CHEM 203 & 211

Borrow Your Textbook from the Library

September 14, 2018

New this Fall, the Library has purchased select textbooks for students to borrow. We recognize the financial burden of purchasing textbooks and hope that this helps ease the load for some students.

Since we can’t purchase every textbook for every class offered at RDC, these are the criteria we consider:

  • high cost (over $100)
  • first-year or introductory course
  • large enrollment
