How the Library Helps

Regent University Library does not routinely purchase textbooks by policy, however nothing says you can't try to find a textbook by searching our library catalog or the catalog of other libraries for a textbook.

How do I do that?

Search the online Library Catalog by title, OR the catalog of libraries near you by accessing their websites

Anything else?

You can search WorldCat to find items in libraries near you

If you ordered a textbook & it's yet to arrive, submit a request to Interlibrary Loan (ILL) they can have the needed pages/chapters of a physical book scanned, saved to PDF & emailed to you. 

Tips and Tricks

  • When ordering, use the ISBN number to ensure you’re getting the correct edition.
  • Save receipts -- student or parents may be able to get a tax break (talk to your tax preparer)
  • Borrow books from a friend who had the same class.
  • Buy used
  • Buy earlier edition if necessary
  • Rent textbooks
  • Textbook Save Engine will find the lowest prices on the internet.
