In addition to making print books available for 3-hour checkout on course reserves, we also provide access to ebook Textbooks when available. This will provide students access to course materials anywhere at any time. 

The in-library print textbook service allows students to check out course-related books for an average of three hours for most titles. One book per participating course is available at the 2nd Floor Library Services Desk in Park Library.

This is a great way to keep up with your studies, using the time between classes to use your textbook in the comfort and convenience of the library, or gain online access to your course materials.

Get started by searching for your textbook using CMU Libraries’ Smart Search. You can search by course name/number, instructor, or designator.
