Textbooks are a challenging item to integrate into the library collection:
- Textbooks are frequently updated with new editions.
- Textbooks are designed for one-copy per student, requiring the library to purchase multiple copies for effective use.
- The Library’s budget and physical space constraints make it impossible to maintain a comprehensive collection of materials required for all courses.
For these reasons the library generally does not purchase textbooks nor requests them through interlibrary loan.
