Lisle Campus

The Library does not collect current textbooks. Some donated current textbooks are held on reserve at the Circulation Desk (Kindlon Lower Level), but the selection is limited. Some titles may be available from other libraries through I-Share, but many of the most current textbooks cannot be borrowed.

The Library has a selection of donated textbooks that are available on a first-come, first-served basis. These are located on the Lower Level of the Library. For students who qualify, the Fr. Kevin J. Sheeran, O.S.B. Textbook Program was created to help students in need meet the cost of required texts for classes in which they are enrolled. Program awards are based upon eligibility criteria and supplement students’ existing financial aid resources. Funding is limited. For additional information and to see if you qualify to apply, please stop by the Academic and Carrer Enrichment Center 215 Goodwin Hall

Current textbooks can be purchased or rented from the Barnes & Noble bookstore on the Lisle campus.
