Hi, you can search StyleCat to see if the FIT Library has the book (or DVD, or other type of material) you need.

Note that

  • we don't generally buy textbooks, but sometimes we have a recent copy or an older version , or your professor lent us a copy, so check StyleCat anyway
  • other readings for your class might not be textbooks, but we may or may not have them depending on whether your professor formally requested that we buy them (we don't automatically get a list of readings for the hundreds or thousands of classes here every semester!)
  • check the catalog 2 ways (e.g. once by author, once by title) to be sure, or ask a librarian for help. Sometimes you've been given wrong information ; for example, the spelling of the author's name might have a typo, or the book name is slightly off like "market research" instead of "marketing research".
