Looking for a textbook? 

The Henry Madden Library does not collect textbooks. However, there are a few things you can do to see if you can get access to textbooks through the library. 

1. Check to see if the book is on course reserve - Instructors sometimes put a copy of their textbooks on course reserve at the library. On the library's home page search box, select the Course Reserves and search by instructor or class name. 

2. Check OneSearch- Although the library doesn't collect textbooks, there is a chance that we have an older edition of your textbook. Just use the OneSearch search box to search for the textbook title (you may need to add one of the author's names to your search since textbook titles tend to be very general). 

3. Use CSU+ - If we don't have a book, you can always try to request it through our interlibrary loan system for books, CSU+. Just keep in mind that many libraries won't lend out their copies of textbooks.
