MVC Library's OneSearch

Finding Textbooks

To search exclusively for items that are on course reserve enter the course code (ie MAT 11, HIS 4), or the name of the course, into the search box, select the search facet “Course Reserves”, and click search.

**For best results we currently recommend searching the course code as a phrase, by placing quotes around it (ie “MAT 11”). We hope to change this soon, so quotes will not be needed.**

This will give you a list of results that are on reserve for that course. Choose the item you are looking for and click into the full record to see what is available.

Write the call number of the item down on a slip of paper. To retrieve an item in the Reserves give the slip of paper with the call number to a circulation desk staff member. Items in Circulating Textbooks can be found along the back wall of the library’s 2nd floor, or ask a librarian or staff member to help you locate it.
