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.

  1. If you know the title of your textbook see How do I find a specific book?

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. Textbooks may be in the short loan collection. Find out more about short loans
