Saint Mary’s Library Continues Pilot Textbook Collection

Faculty teaching in undergraduate courses with multiple sections and a small number of graduate teaching faculty will want to alert their students to the Textbook Collection on reserve in the Library.

Students using our 2012-2013 pilot Textbooks on Reserve collection, initially funded by the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Academics, overwhelmingly endorsed this new service and asked for it to be expanded.  We are grateful to the President, the Provost, and the Cabinet for approving Strategic Initiative funding for the next three years to continue this service and expand it.  Currently, there are 100 required undergraduate texts for courses with multiple sections and a small selection of graduate textbooks. The entire collection is available for 2-hour checkout. The Library is also grateful to the Bookstore Manager for providing assistance.

Please inform Acquisitions Manager Betty-Bell Amarant (x4663) if any of the titles in this list are out of date, or if there are titles which we should add to the collection. Consider adding a personal copy of a current textbook to help us expand this collection.
