The Textbook Collection makes print textbooks available on short-term loan for the majority of Ryerson’s undergraduate courses.

Textbooks are available from the Reserve Collection at the Circulation Desk on the main floor of the Library and can be requested by Call Number.

Check to see if your textbook is available:


Wherever possible, the Library has purchased 1 copy of each textbook.  Multiple copies have been purchased, upon request, for large classes (1 textbook for every 25 enrolments).  

To ensure that these books are available to the largest number of students, they may only be borrowed for 2 hours during the hours that the Library is open and may only be borrowed by Ryerson students, faculty and staff.
