Save money on textbooks at K-State Libraries

Submitted by Cailin Riley

K-State Libraries offers textbooks and course materials on reserve so all K-Staters can access them for free.

If you've never used textbooks at the Libraries, first determine whether we have the item you need by searching our website. You can also use our chat service or call 785-532-3014 to ask if we have your textbook.

To borrow a textbook, bring your K-State ID and course code to the library help desk where the item is located. It's also important to know your instructor's last name.

You'll be able to check out the material under the conditions specified by your instructor — usually two hours. Free scanners are available if you want to scan the portion of the text you need.

If you don't find your textbook:

  • Consider asking your instructor if they would be willing to place a copy on reserve.
  • Visit a library help desk to request that we obtain a copy.
