Find Textbooks: The Basics

This guide is designed to help you find information about buying and renting textbooks as well as how to check and see if the library carries a copy of your textbook.

NSU Bookstore

It is recommended whenever possible to either buy or rent your textbook or etextbook. Please visit the NSU Bookstore or this page for more information. The library does NOT actively collect textbooks although there is always a chance that we may have a copy of a textbook or etextbook that you need.

Other Options

Below is a list of several options to help you track down a specific book including textbooks if the NSU Libraries does not carry them. It should be noted though that all these options may come with limitations such as check out periods so whenever possible you will want to get a textbook copy of your own.
