Does the Weinberg Library have my textbook?
No, The Weinberg Library does not purchase textbooks. Textbooks are updated much more frequently than the traditional library book, thus making them difficult to keep up-to-date. On the slim chance that we may have acquired the textbook for your class, it would be listed in the Online Catalog. To check, simply access the “Our Catalog” link from the Library’s homepage and type in the exact title of the textbook (editor or author is helpful, since most textbooks have generic names such as Fundamentals of Psychology, Microeconomics, etc.) Supplemental reading, such as a short story or essay may be found in collections of typical library books. Use the procedure listed above to see if the book is here.
Length of loan can also be problematic, since books circulate for one month, and you need your textbook for an entire semester.
You may also try E-Z Borrow (PALCI), a direct borrowing service found as a link from the Library’s Homepage. Your Royal Number is your login for this service. Check the holdings information on this search, since many libraries may have the book, but it could be already checked out.
