Does the library have my textbooks?

Now that the May 2012 term is starting, many of you are probably wondering where to find your textbooks and course reading materials.  Usually, you can find these listed under Course Information in your online course in ANGEL.

The first place to check for your textbooks is the college bookstore at www.esc.edu/bookstore.  They have information on how to find your books, how to order online and their contact information listed there. If you have any questions or need help ordering your books, contact the bookstore.

If you just want a list of your textbooks to see if you can find them on your own, please check with the bookstore or look in your online course for this information.  The only ones who know what textbooks you need are the bookstore and your instructor. 

You are welcome to check the library e-book catalog to see if we have any of your textbooks in our online library but it is rare that we have textbooks available.  You can search the e-book catalog by clicking on Books on the library homepage at www.esc.edu/library.    If you do a search and your book is not listed, unfortunately, the online library does not have that book.

You may also have readings located in your course.  Often the instructor will list how to access the reading or might include a link to the reading.

When all else fails or you still are not sure what to do,  it is always best to check with your instructor.
