The library has many, but not all, course textbooks on reserve, usually for 3 hour check out.  Textbook availability for a course varies by instructor and course section.  Search the library class reserves to see if we have your textbook.  It is helpful to know your instructor's name as well as the title, author and edition of your textbooks.   

The MVCC bookstore’s online look up can help determine the title, author and edition of textbooks used for your class section.

The MVCC bookstore has textbooks for purchase and rent. 

If you need further help determining the availability of your textbook in the library contact the reference desk through Ask a Librarian.  If you have determined the library has your textbook it may be requested and checked out at the circulation desk.
