The Consortium Library does not purchase textbooks for classes, but fortunately you have some alternatives:
1) Stop by the Library’s circulation desk to see if the book for your class has been put on reserve by your professor. Make sure you know the instructor’s last name and the title of the item. Or you can check for yourself by going to the Library Catalog, change the default from “All Collections” and choose Course Reserves Consortium or Course Reserves LC (Learning Commons). You can search by instructor last name, course name, or course ID.
2) Check if you are able to rent the 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 used, or access an open textbook.
Good luck with the spring semester!
