The Berkeley College campus libraries have reserved sets of current textbooks however they may not have one for every course. You can check to see if your campus library has a copy of your textbook by visiting the Textbooks on Reserve by Location LibGuide. Note that textbook collections vary by campus and should not be considered a substitute for purchasing your own copy of required course textbooks. Select the tab for your campus to see if there is a physical copy of your e-Text. 

These copies may not leave the libraries and must be used on-site. 

The Rules of Use are basic and few:

  • Textbook loans are limited to 2 hour, in library use only. No matter what the reason, textbooks do not leave the library.

  • You must have a valid Berkeley College ID card with library barcode applied to the back. (*Note: Online Students have a separate Library Card).

  • Photocopying is limited by copyright law.

  • The library staff will not reproduce or provide in any format textbook content.

  • Do not make markings of any kind (highlight, underline) in library provided textbooks.

  • Taking a library textbook from the premises or deliberately removing pages will result in disciplinary action.

The library may have older copies of your textbook that you can use.  You can search the Library Catalog for previous editions. 

Current Textbooks that must be used in the library will appear in the catalog with a TEXTBOOK collection

Older Textbooks that can be checked out will appear in the catalog with a NON-FICTION collection
