You may want to change your search strategy.  Conduct an Advanced Search in the catalog.  In the first box select title as the field and enter part of the book's title.  In the second box select author as the field and enter the author's last name.  Check your spelling if your search results still show no matching resources.

You also can return to the catalog and click on Course Reserves under the search box.  You can search by Course, Instructor and/or Department.  If the textbook copy on reserve is owned by your instructor, you can find it through the Course Reserves search, but not the Classic or Advanced catalog search.

Still no luck? Please ask a librarian or one of our great circulation staff for help.  Be sure that you know the title of the textbook for the course as well as the course number.
