In general, the libraries do not purchase textbooks that are required for Furman classes. There are occasions in which a class may use a book that is in the collection already, but this is not guarunteed. To find out if the libraries already own a copy of the book you need, search the catalog.

Some faculty may place a copy of their textbook on reserve at the libraries. You can search online to see if your class has any items on reserve.

There are also some textbooks in the Education Curriculum Center. Located on the lower level of the James B. Duke Library, the center houses professional education resources including k-12 textbooks, juvenile literature, and curriculum materials that support the preparation of initial and continuing educators.
