The UC Libraries' collections generally do NOT include textbooks. Chemistry-Biology and CEAS Librariy have some textbooks on reserves. You may try to search the OhioLINK catalog and request the textbook from another institution, if it is available. However, there is no guarantee that you will be able to keep it for the semester, as item are subject to recall after 3 weeks. You can also rent e-textbooks from the UC Bookstore.
