The Library will make a copy of the textbooks for 100-level General Education Program classes available on reserve for spring semester. For questions about specific titles on reserve in the Daley Library, inquire at the Reserve and Media Services desk; or contact Pia Hunter (firstname.lastname@example.org or 312-996-2719); or search Course Reserves in the Library’s online catalog.
Although the Library does not usually purchase textbooks, this effort is designed to improve the first-year student experience. Providing a single copy on reserve is not intended to substitute for the purchase of the text by all students, but it will enable students to consult the materials should they not happen to have brought the textbook on a day it is needed.
The Offices of the Provost and Student Affairs support the Library’s efforts to make the Gen Ed textbooks available.
Students can check the Library’s catalog for books used in classes other than the 100-level Gen Ed courses. An online tutorial explains the steps.
