Policies & Procedures

Textbooks and Course Reserves for Students

Generally speaking, most university and college libraries do not purchase textbooks and the NAU library is no exception. It is the responsibility of students to make arrangements for their required course materials. North American University and Intensive English Program textbooks are available for purchase at the bookstore in the Bursar’s Office. All purchases made at the bookstore can be fully refunded within two weeks (14 days) of purchase. Customers must have receipt with them to receive their refunds.

For more information about using Textbook and other Reserve materials, please see the Textbook section on our Library Policies and Procedures page.

Note: in many cases the we may not have a copy of a particular textbook on reserve. The library DOES NOT automatically maintain a copy of each textbook used on campus, nor does the library order textbooks to be placed on reserve. Placement of reserve textbooks are the responsibility of the individual professors and/or departments. It is strongly suggested that students contact their professors PRIOR to the beginning of the course to see if a copy of the textbooks can be provided for the reserves.

*If you are an online student, please contact the Librarian about textbook and course reserves from our library.
