This is a great question and it can be easily answered!
The tool you’ll need to fuel your search is the title of the book.
For extra insurance, it’s really good if you also have the name of the author of the book. (It’s amazing how many books have the same title!)
Start your search at the Library Home Page, and follow these steps:
- Key the title of the book into the search box.
- Before hitting enter, click on the word “keyword” [to the right of the search box] and change it to “title”.
- Also, click the link below the search box that says “Just books”.
- Now press enter and… voila!
Be sure to write down the location and the call number.
If the textbook costs more than $40 in the bookstore then we will always have a copy available on course reserve. These items can only be used in the library. Present your Columbia ID along with the title and call number of the book at the 1st floor desk.
Don’t know the name of the book?
You can find it on your course syllabus or your schedule in OASIS.
