Library "Do-It-Yourself" (DIY)

I am looking for a textbook for my class

FAU Libraries has a collection of selected Textbook Reserves, which may be available in either print or electronic format.  Check the Textbook Reserves Guide to search by title or course.  Reserved items are available for in-library use ONLY.

You can also check to see if your professor has placed a copy of a current textbook on Course Reserves (and consider asking if s/he will consider doing so in the future).  

Additionally, you can check the FAU Library Catalog to see if we have an older edition of a current textbook.
