Textbook Reserves

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, hard copy books in the textbook reserves collection currently are unavailable for borrowing.  But wait!  We do have some electronic textbooks in the textbook reserves collection.  See below for instructions on how to use the textbook reserves library guide to see if we have your classroom textbook in an electronic format.  Don't see your e-textbook today?  Check back here, and often! We update this guide as we are able to, and we will continue to make every effort to add as many e-textbooks as possible to the textbook reserves.

Please note: If you are off-campus, and want to access an e-book in the textbook reserves collection, you must first authenticate yourself as a member of the FAU community.  You can do so here.
