We may. Although we do not usually have textbooks for K-State courses, some instructors bring us their personally owned textbooks so we can place the copies on Reserve and we occasionally receive older editions as donations.

To check our Reserves collection:

1.    In the middle of our home page, type in the textbook title and select K-State Libraries course reserves

2.    Type in a subject such as history in the search box or the textbook title

4.    Then, if needed, Refine My Results by choosing a link under Course Name, Course Code and Section, Course Instructors, or Academic Department

5.    If you don't find it; we may still have it. Contact Library Help and we will check for you.
