FAQ : Students & Reserves

Does the library have my textbook?

The library purchases textbooks as a service to students. Check if we have your book here. It may be a print textbook, an ebook, or available as both.

What if the library doesn't have my textbook/ebook?

The library may be able to add it. Contact the Circulation Desk: email libaccess@kettering.edu or call (810-762-7814). Keep in mind that it takes up to six weeks for us to obtain new textbooks. In the meantime, we may be able to provide a digital copy or a physical copy on loan from our consortium, Michigan Electronic Library, or Inter-Library Loan.
