Textbooks on Reserve for Core Courses: Home

Access to required textbooks through the library's Course Reserves for Kent Core (general education requirements) courses.


The Core Textbooks on Reserve program is designed to give students free access to textbooks for some Kent Core (general education) courses.

Textbooks for this project were chosen because they were used in multiple Core courses with high enrollment, multiple sections, and usually found at a higher cost. Depending on the enrollment in the core class, more than one copy of a title may have been purchased by the library and placed on reserve.

Core Textbooks are available for check out at the circulation desk located on the first floor in the University Library. They can circulate for two hours and may not leave the building.
