Textbook Reserves

In support of the college's teaching mission and affordable learning initiatives, the Clermont College Library purchases core textbooks that cost more that $100 for Clermont College courses. Students should request the textbook at the library information desk. A valid Bearcat Card or photo ID is required to check out a textbook.

Program Basics

  • Only one copy of a textbook is purchased. If a duplicate copy is donated after the library has purchased one copy, the gift will be incorporated into the textbook reserve collection.
  • The library does not purchase lab manuals, bundled sets, custom editions, access codes, or loose-leaf format items.
  • Reserve textbooks can be checked out for 2 hours at a time.
  • Textbooks may be renewed if not requested by another student.
  • Fines for overdue textbooks accrue at $1 an hour.

Find Your Textbook

  • If you know the book title, search the Clermont College Library's reserve textbooks list.
  • If you do not know the book title, check Catalyst, view your syllabus, or ask your professor.
