Q: Can I checkout my textbook from the library?


Typically, we DO NOT have textbooks available for each of the courses offered at KSU.

Some faculty members do have materials on reserve for students to use throughout the semester.

For more information on reserve materials, visit the Sturgis Library Check Out Desk on the ground floor of the library or call 470-578-6202 OR visit the Johnson Library Check Out Desk on the first floor of the library or call 470-578-7276.

If we don't have the item you are looking for, please ask your professor to place the item on reserve in the library. Find the link for reserves on our homepage under Services >Course Reserves.

Sometimes, we have older editions of textbooks in our collection. To check availability of a textbook search KSU's Library Catalog or get the book from another USG school by searching The Universal Catalog.

Here are FAQs about how to search the catalog or how to get a book from another library. Please note that you may not request textbooks through interlibrary loan, and requests for textbooks may be canceled.
