ILL: Required Course Textbooks & ILL

Though we understand that textbook prices are especially high, the library is unable to borrow required class textbooks via Interlibrary Loan.  Why?

So considering all of these reasons, not allowing required course textbook requests protects you from getting far behind in your class work and study while waiting for a textbook that might not be able to be borrowed, from losing your library and interlibrary loan rights and being responsible for replacement costs and fees should you neglect to return a book when it would be due or recalled, and from entering requests that the ILL staff must eventually cancel anyway. 

But I can't afford my textbooks!

If you cannot afford your textbooks from the campus bookstore, consider sharing textbooks with your classmates or comparative shopping from local booksellers, fellow students, and the many new and used online bookstores.

 Can I talk to someone about this?
If you have more questions or comments about this ILL policy, please contact Judy Greenwood, the Interlibrary Loan Librarian, directly at, 662-915-7936, J.D. Williams Library.
