FAQ Page

Parkland Library is NOT the primary source for textbooks.  However, some instructors do place copies "on reserve" for in-library use only.

Search Reserves



Occassionally, you will find a textbook that you can check out of the library.  At best, this will get you through the first week or so of class while waiting for your copy to arrive.  These may be recalled at any time, meaning you will be asked to return the book for another student, and can be renewed only once.



The Parkland Bookstore stocks books being used in the current semester.

Alternative Textbook Sources

Please note that the library does not endorse any of these alternative resources.

It can sometimes take longer than you expect for a textbook ordered online to arrive.

Shop carefully.
