Your class requires a $100 textbook. You go to the library to see if they have a copy but you learn that the Library does not purchase textbooks due to the frequent changes in editions.
What should you do? Luckily, we have some options for you:
1) Check with the circulation desk to see if the book was put on reserve for your class. Make sure you give the people at the desk the course name and/or instructor last name. Or you can check yourself by going to the Library Catalog and looking for the course by instructor name, course ID or title.
2) Rent a textbook through the UAA Campus Bookstore or purchase a used copy.
3) Try one of the websites listed in our Textbook guide to rent, download, purchase, or try an open textbook.
