The library does not make it a standard practice to provide every textbook used in Penn State courses. The large number of books, cost, and frequently updated editions make this impractical.
However, you can often locate a copy of the book(s) needed for your class(es) in the library. Here are two things to try.
1. Search for your book using the Advanced Search in LionSearch.
Search by Title and Author (Written/created by) instead of ISBN.
2. Course Reserves - Sometimes an instructor will make class materials available to students through the library by placing them on reserve. To see what is available for your class, check the Course Reserves list using the search box on the University Libraries website.
