Textbooks! Textbooks! Textbooks!

A reminder to new students & faculty during these first weeks of the new semester: the library does not buy textbooks.

Many academic libraries have a no textbook policy due to the fact they are updated frequently, and so we (especially here at UT) lack the space and budget to buy the required textbooks for each class. We may have an older version that someone gifted to us, so if you can use that for class, check our Online Catalog. Typically, you won’t find the most recent edition in our collection.

In the past, we have had professors opt to put their textbooks on reserve. Check the Course Reserves tab in the Online Catalog to see if any book is on reserve for your class.

Let us know if you have any questions!
