Probably not.  The Libraries can't purchase all the textbooks in use at WVU.   

The most reliable way to get textbooks is to purchase or rent them from a campus or online bookstores.

But possibly. Some faculty put a textbook on Reserve in a campus library.  Some older editions of texts may also be on library shelves. 

  • You can search Course Reserves to search for texts 
  • Visit the library indicated to borrow the book
  • Reserve books may be borrowed for 2 hours
  • You can search the library catalog from the homepage
  • Some may be available from another library using the EZBorrow system here: https://ezborrow.lib.wvu.edu/
