Textbooks: Textbooks in the Libraries

A guide to textbooks inside and outside the library.

Wild Goose Chase?

STLCC Libraries and other MOBIUS libraries are NOT the primary source for textbooks. You MAY find textbooks on reserve for library use only at STLCC Libraries. In MOBIUS you may very occasionally find textbooks to check out for a few weeks.

At best, this works as a way to get through the first week or so of class while waiting for your textbook to arrive.

Ask a Librarian (use the chat box below) if you need help searching.

Search the STLCC Libraries Catalog

Remember the ISBN number you noted to make sure you get the correct edition? Type, or even better, paste it in the box below:

 


Type the ISBN as it appears. Punctuation and spaces can be omitted if desired. For example:

  • 978-0838935767
  • 0838935761

Search MOBIUS

MOBIUS is a network of libraries across the state of Missouri. Member libraries include virtually all the academic libraries and a few large public libraries. You can request books to be sent to your own campus library.

While it is highly unlikely that you can find a commonly-used college textbook in MOBIUS, you are welcome to try.

Use that trusty ISBN number again to make sure you get the correct edition!
