Textbooks

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.

If you find your textbook on reserve at STLCC Libraries, you may request up to three (3) chapters from course reserves.

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

If you search by the textbook title or author, you might find a different edition of the textbook. A different edition could have only slight variations, or it could be completely different from the edition your class is using. Always use the the specific edition or check with your instructor.

Search MOBIUS

MOBIUS is a network of libraries across the region. Member libraries include virtually all the college and university libraries in Missouri, plus some public libraries and libraries in other states. You can request MOBIUS 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!
