No, not right now. Ordinarily, you'd be able to check out a textbook for library us only, depending on if your instructor or department put the textbook on reserve in the library. To help prevent the spread of the virus, these books cannot be checked out as they won't have time to quarantine between use. 

As an alternative, we are temporarily offering to scan and deliver electronically chapters from our print course reserves*. Go to Scan Request for Course Reserves to make a request. Here are a few rules:

  1. We will only scan chapters, we cannot scan entire books.
  2. Limited to 2 chapters per book per person per week.
  3. Please allow three (3) working days for processing.
  4. Library staff will email you back an electronic file.
