Does the IVC Library have everything that the bookstore has?
No. The bookstore typically sells course materials for the current semester. The library has a limited selection of course materials.
If you're looking for items at the library that are being used in current semester, please check our Reserves collection. These are materials for current IVC courses, put on reserve by instructors, that students can use for a limited time period inside the library.
Previous editions of textbooks are kept in our Open Reserves section and can be checked our for one week with the opportunity to renew one time for another week if no other patron has put a hold on the textbook.
