University Libraries Textbook Resource Guide: Spring 2020

Home

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 Spring 2020 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.

For other assigned readings that may be available in the library, check the course reserves catalog by course or professor or search the UR Library Catalog.
