Looking for a textbook?

Check the catalog - while we don't always have the textbooks assigned for classes, we sometimes will. If you see it in the catalog be sure to check and make sure the date and edition match what your professor is requiring. An easy way to search is on the library home page - (all the lab PCs start on the LITS page - from there click on the line for Drake Library.) Then under the books tab you will see a check box for exact title. Click on that then put in your textbook's title in the search form.

Sorry, but if we do not own a textbook we will not get it through interlibrary loan, it would just overload the system. Try the bookstore, or online sites like Amazon.com or Betterworldbooks.com.

As always, we are always glad to help you - see our "ask a librarian" page.

Seeing these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is ever-permeating in this day and age, and I think it is safe to say that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further innovates, the possibility of uploading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about all the time.
