FAQ: Textbooks

Posted on: May 13, 2010 @ 12:28:21 pm

Question: Can I get my textbook from the library?

Answer: We do have some textbooks in our Rosen General Collection, but we do not have the text for every course. To find out if we have your textbook, you can search the UCF Library Catalog or ask a Library staff member for assistance. You will need to know the exact title of the book (and, ideally, the author and year of publication) in order to determine if we own it.

If the textbook is at the main campus library, you may request it through Interlibrary Loan. We offer a courier service that delivers books to the Rosen campus Monday through Friday. We will email you when the book arrives. Alternatively, you can retrieve the book yourself by driving or taking the Rosen Shuttle to the main campus -- see the Rosen College Shuttle Schedule for times.

In addition, some professors put textbooks or other materials on reserve at the Library, which means that the items remain in the Library so that all students in a class can have access to it. To find out if your textbook has been put on reserve, check the UCF Library Course Reserve catalog or ask a Library staff member for assistance.
