Even More Textbooks on Reserve!

Thanks to Miami Middletown Student Government (MMSG) funding, donated textbooks, and the provision of personal copies by MUM faculty members, the Library's collection of Textbooks on Reserve has increased! Ten additional textbooks were added between Fall and Spring Semesters, making five new courses available (including ACC 221, 222; MUS 185, 189; GLG 141; and now all sections of PSY 111). There are now 45 courses which have at least their main textbooks on reserve, 33 of which were provided through a combination of donations, MMSG funds, and Library funds. The full list of represented courses is available at (links to new textbook titles will be added shortly).

Once again, we hope that the Textbooks on Reserve will be beneficial to students who are unable to purchase (or are delayed in purchasing) required textbooks, or who forget to bring their textbooks to campus. The ready availability of these sources should enhance student learning since the sources are on hand for easy use. One copy of each textbook is available, and the books may be checked out for two-hour use.

The Library asks for your help in making students aware of the program. As well, if we have overlooked a course for inclusion or if you have a textbook to donate, please let us know. If there are any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact John Burke.
