This guide will provide the different options you have when looking for a textbook.

Textbooks on Reserve

Search for Textbooks on Reserve >> 

  • Reserves are textbooks and/or course-related materials made available to students in the MATC library.
  • They are located at the front desk at each campus library.
  • You can check out Reserve items with your Student ID.
  • Check out periods vary, but most items are Library Use Only, so you can use them in the Library, photocopy pages using your Student ID, or take pictures of pages with your phone.
  • If your instructor does NOT have a book on reserve, you can ask them if they can get an extra copy to put on reserve in the Library, or let us know and we can contact your instructor.
