Oakton Library Textbooks on Reserve

While the Library supports the Oakton Bookstore's mission overall, the Library also provides students with the opportunity to consult a copy of some textbooks on Library reserve as a bridge between the start of the semester and the delivery of their textbook if they choose to purchase from another source at a cheaper price. The Library purchases and puts on reserve one copy of the required textbook for any Oakton course offered in 3 or more sections for which one common textbook is used in each section.

The Library makes the textbook collection on reserve available to students to use only in the campus libraries for 2 hours at a time. At each campus reference desk, the Library also provides a list of online textbook sellers.

For questions about Oakton Library Textbooks on Reserve, please contact the Oakton Library reference desk at 847.635.1644.
