Where can I get the textbooks for my classes?

The Library makes a limited number of required textbooks available for 3 hour and 3 day loan, depending on class sizes. This is to allow students to access textbooks for study, e.g. if they have left their book at home. (It is expected that students will purchase their own copy of required textbooks.) You can search for books by class or lecturer using the Unit Booklist search on the Library Catalogue.

The COOP Bookshop in Building 1, opposite the Library, sells textbooks and general interest books. You can also order direct from the COOP Bookshop's website and get free delivery anywhere in Australia. The 'textbook search' on the COOP website shows assigned texts for UC classes.

You may be able to find second hand texts listed on noticeboards around campus. The UCU Shop may have used textbooks for sale.

You should confirm the details of required and recommended textbooks in your Unit Outline - this is usually provided via Learn Online (Moodle).
