Textbooks and laboratory manuals required for courses are not purchased by the EMU Library.
Funds are limited, and the purchase of textbooks may preclude the purchase of other important library materials. Exceptions may be made for textbooks that provide the only or best coverage of a subject, or when the work itself is of a seminal, historical, or other significant nature.
The EMU Library does not receive notification of which books will be used as textbooks. Check the EMU Bookstore.
Course Reserves & Textbooks
Students can learn what is on Reserve by checking the Course Reserves list or asking at the Circulation Desk.
Faculty may request that books owned by the library, personal copies of faculty-owned textbooks, or other materials, be placed on Reserve at the Circulation Desk.
