The Libraries may own your textbook, but we do not comprehensively acquire them.   

To check, enter the first few words of its title and author/editor's last name into the search box on the Libraries' homepage and click Search or Enter. This will produce a list of titles; click on yours and then on 'Editions and Formats' in order to locate the exact edition you're seeking.

While UMD Libraries now offer a Top Textbook Reserves, there are still many textbooks that we don't have. If the Libraries do not own what you're looking for, another option is to request the book through UBorrow or Interlibrary Loan. Be advised, however, that these services cannot in most cases borrow books from outside libraries for entire semesters.
