Duke University Libraries have purchased textbooks for the 100 largest courses on campus, based on course enrollment.

These books can all be checked out for up to 3 hours at a time and are all available at the Perkins Library Service Desk. Where indicated, some textbooks are also available at the Lilly Library on East Campus.

In order to provide the greatest service to the largest number of students, selection of textbooks for this automatic purchase program is focused on the courses with the most students enrolled. If you don't see your courses on this list, don't despair . . . textbooks for many additional courses have been placed on reserve at specific faculty request.

Please note: Textbooks on reserve are not intended to take the place of students purchasing textbooks for their courses. Due to budget limitations, the Libraries are unable to purchase textbooks for every course at Duke.
