Textbooks

Welcome to the University Libraries Textbook Resource Guide. This guide is a service to students who inquire about textbook availability in the library. Although the library does not actively purchase textbooks, we do have some titles available in our collection, either as a print book or an electronic book. Below is a selected list of textbooks for the Fall 2017 semester that are available to students through the UR Library Catalog. Click on the title to locate the call number or the e-book link. We have also included links to books that are freely available on the internet.

If you do not find a textbook title on this list, you can also double-check and search the exact title in the UR Library Catalog.
