Teachers often put textbooks and other assigned materials on Reserve in the library for students to use.

  • You may borrow printed and physical reserve items from the Service Desk in the library for up to two hours at a time.  They are available on a first-come first-served basis.  Scanners and photocopiers are near the Service Desk.
  • The library can make limited-use electronic copies of portions of reserve items.  You can view the digital file on your screen for up to two hours after you've opened it.  To ask us to make an electronic file, submit a request form.  We process requests when the library is open.  We will contact you at your TC3 email address when the file is ready.  

If your teacher is using a textbook that we don't have on reserve in the library, please let us know.

If you want to buy a copy of your textbook or rent it for the semester, please contact the campus Bookstore.
