The Library does not normally collect textbooks for RMU courses. Students are expected to purchase required textbooks for their courses.
A small percentage of courses at RMU have textbooks and other materials on Reserve in the Library. Course Reserves may be checked out for two hours.
Occasionally there are certain books in the General Collection or the Reference Collection of the Library that are also required texts for your courses; those can be located by searching ROBCAT.
