Textbooks at the Learning Commons

How the course reserve textbook collection works...

The Learning Commons has a collection of course textbooks on reserve behind the front desk. These textbooks may be borrowed for use while you are in the Learning Commons.

Want to see if we have your textbooks?

Search for the title in our library catalog

OR ask a librarian!

Hoping to find electronic access to your textbooks?

First, search for the title or your course number in our library catalog to see if we have an ebook available.

If it's not in our catalog, Western's Campus Shop is the best resource for learning about purchase or rental options for print or electronic textbooks.

Are you an instructor?

We always welcome additions to our reserves. Instructors or department staff can drop off a copy of the textbook at the Learning Commons and we'll put it on reserve for your course. We are also working on expanding access to our digital course reserves collection. We encourage you to contact the library for more information about this collaboration opportunity!

We would also be happy to help you explore open and/or affordable educational resources as an option for your course. Please contact the library or one of your librarians to start the conversation.
