Please note some of your books will be located in the GCW library and others in The Ross Library.  Locations will be given when you search on the library catalogue. 

The Library website will tell you which library the book is at and whether a book is on the shelves (checked in) or on loan (checked out).  If the book is checked out it will tell you when it is due back.  If you would like to borrow a book that is out on loan, request it by clicking on the Reserve button.  

When looking for a textbook you should always try to obtain the latest edition.
