Finding Your Textbooks

Undergraduate textbooks are available for use inside the library for two hours at a time. You need to bring the call number of the textbook you want to use to the Circulation Desk on the lower level. There are two fast and simple ways to find the call numbers of your textbooks.

1. If you know the course number: go to http://library.iit.edu/reserves and search by course number to see a complete list of books.

Enter your course number to find a list of textbooks for the course.

2. If you only know the name of the textbook: enter the title in the search box on our homepage. Choose to search by title and click search. You can write down the call number from the main catalog screen. There is also an option to text yourself the call number, which is a great way to ensure you’ll have the correct number with you.

tip: write the call number on your syllabus so you don’t have to look it up again.

Click on the title to learn more about the specific book, such as the edition number.

a status of ‘available’ or ‘recently checked in’ means the book can be used. Books already in use will list the time they are due.

To learn more, watch this short video, read this quick PDF or see our textbook policies. If you tried both methods and still can’t find the call numbers you need, ask us!
