More course books, please!

Drexel has money to spend on construction but can’t afford to keep multiple copies of course books? Really? What would happen in finals week if everyone wanted to use the book?

Thanks for the question. The library’s course reserve system allows instructors to make course texts available to their students. Instructors select the books and the number of copies to put in the reserve system. Frequently these books are your instructors’ own personal copies. The reserve system is not meant as a replacement for students buying their own books.  Reserve texts are provided as a courtesy by the library and your instructors, but if we made it a policy to provide enough books for each student, we would not be able to provide other vital library services and resources at the level that Drexel University requires.
