Search for Textbooks Available in Libraries

We understand that textbooks are extremely expensive.  Unfortunately, the Libraries have limited budgets, like students, and we cannot afford to buy every textbook used at Wright State. 

NOTE: Students sometimes successfully get their textbooks through other OhioLINK member libraries, but other students in your classes and at other universities throughout Ohio do the same thing, so there are never enough textbooks in the libraries for everyone who wants them.  Even if you manage to successfully order some or all of your textbooks through a library, there is no guarantee that you will be able to keep them for the entire semester.
