Students should make sure they have good reliable access to all the textbooks required for their courses.
Guttman does not have a college bookstore. Students wishing to purchase or rent books may do so online. Amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com offer a wide selection of new and used books in print and electronic formats and, for print books, quick delivery.
There are other sources for textbook acquisitions, too. CUNY has compiled a thorough though not exhaustive textbook fact sheet to help students save money when purchasing textbooks.
The Information Commons is able to buy some textbooks. To see if your textbook is available for use in the Library, try searching the author or title through the Guttman OneSearch page.
How to get a textbook on Reserve: available textbooks must be requested at the Circulation Desk. It is helpful to have the call number, which you may find by searching for the title through Guttman OneSearch page. A call number contains letters and numbers (example: KF8745 .S67 A3 2013) and is not the same as ISBN.
You may also bring your syllabus or simply the name of the book and we can help you locate it.
