Textbooks: How to Find a textbook in the library:

Textbooks are available in the library:

A limited number of newer print editions are found in the Library Reserves, which may be checked out for up to 21 days. You are also limited to one reserved item at a time. See below to check if a text is available in our OneSearch Library Catalog. You can also ask us at the library or call 951-372-7119 for assistance.

Older print editions of textbooks *may* be available on our shelves, which you may also check out of the library for 21 days. Always check with your professor if an older edition is okay for a class.

Print books found at MVC or RCC can be requested and picked up from those libraries.
