Textbooks on Reserve
The UTSA Libraries has a selection of textbooks on reserve. Primarily we carry textbooks required for lower-division, high-enrollment classes with higher-cost textbooks. Faculty can also bring copies of textbooks to be placed on reserve for classes.
Most texbooks may be checked out for two hours at a time. Some are available for checkout periods of four hours, overnight, or two days (as determined by the instructor).
Textbooks on reserve are not intended to take the place of students purchasing textbooks for their courses. Due to budget limitations, we are unable to purchase textbooks for every course.
