We strive to make sure students have reliable access to all the textbooks required for their courses.
Borrowing textbooks in the Information Commons
The Guttman Library situated in the Information Commons offers a RESERVE section for textbooks. To see if your textbook is available for use in the Library, try searching the author or title through the Guttman OneSearch page, or simply come by the Circulation desk for assistance. It is helpful to have the call number, found through Guttman OneSearch, or your professor may have provided it on your syllabus. 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.
Buying and Renting textbooks
Guttman does not have a physical bookstore. Students wishing to purchase or rent books may do so online through the Guttman Online Bookstore.
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 acquiring textbooks.
