Text Books

If students encounter a problem purchasing textbooks in the beginning of the semester, ask the bookstore to supply a copy of your text to be placed on reserve for all to use until more of your text books are available for purchase.


ILLIAD is the program used by BGSU main campus, to order items such as books and articles that are not available to us through our usual methods of ordering materials.  For example, if you are searching for a particlular article and you find it but it is not available in full text, you can order it through ILLIAD and the librarians at BG's Jerome library will get it for you.  They have a process in which they can find who has the article and will cover the copyright fees if there are any associated with that particular article.  They send the PDF of your article to you electronically through ILLIAD.  Be sure to set up an account (First Time Users) so that when you actually want to order an article, the process runs more smoothly.
