How Do I Find Compulsory and Recommended Textbooks?
How do I find compulsory and recommended textbooks?
Students are expected to purchase compulsory textbooks. The Library purchases limited copies of compulsory textbooks and cannot guarantee that a copy will be available to borrow.
- If you know the title of your textbook see How do I find a specific book?
- If you don't have a title and want to find out what textbooks are compulsory or recommended for your course, enter the course number into Discover, for example, 139.105
Hint: Don't know the course number? Use Course Search
- Once you have done your search, you will see a list of items for your course. Examination papers are usually at the top of the list; scroll down past these to see the compulsory and recommended textbooks.
- Textbooks may be in the short loan collection. Find out more about short loans
