The library does not purchase current textbooks for the circulating collection, but we do keep some textbooks on reserve behind the circulation desk. We do not have all textbooks, but if a faculty member brings us a copy we will gladly and quickly make it available to students. Most textbooks may be used in the library only for up to two hours. You will need a library card to borrow these books.
Program heads, especially, we encourage you to stop by the library to update the textbooks for your curricula when you can. Use this form when you are bringing in new materials, please. If you prefer, we can send an inventory of textbooks currently available for your program so you can see what needs to be updated. Contact Lisa Bishop at the Parham Road Campus, Rebekah Goodfellow at the Downtown Campus, or Ophelia Payne at the Western Campus.
Reserves are listed in the VCCSLinc Catalog but are a little tricky to find. Select Course Reserves from the blue menu, then choose J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College. I think the easiest search is Course Number, begins with. Choose that, then put the course code–MTH for math, ENG for English, EGR for engineering, etc.–in the textbox. You’ll see everything we have for that course group.
