Physical and Digital Reserve Textbooks

Textbooks and other items on reserve for classes are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Items can be checked out, for use in the library, for up to two hours.  Scanners and photocopiers are available in the library.  Items can be borrowed for longer if no one else is waiting for them.

Portions of reserve textbooks can also be made available in a digital format.  An electronic file of a book chapter can be created for you to view on your screen for up to two hours once you have opened it. To request that we make an electronic file available, submit this form.  You will be contacted at your TC3 email address when the file is ready.  Requests are processed when the library is open.

If a teacher is using a textbook that is not on reserve in the library, let us know and we will do our best to remedy the situation.

Please email Lucy Yang if you have any questions.
