Lakeland's library is a full partner in the teaching and learning process of the college community.

As the major information resource on campus, the library supports quality opportunities for lifelong learning by acquiring materials in support of the curriculum, providing access to those materials, and teaching information literacy skills. Search the catalog, see library services, and stay up to date with our monthly newsletter.

Course Reserves

The Library does not purchase textbooks to circulate, however, we have a few donations that do. Normal loan periods apply. Also, some instructors put textbooks and other supplemental materials into our Course Reserves, which can be used for periods of two hours at a time in the library.

To find textbooks in the library, search the catalog by book title, author, or search the textbook reserve list. Each textbook has an ISBN number located on the back cover that is unique to that book. Searching by ISBN is probably the easiest way to locate a specific edition.

You may search the Course Reserves list by course name or instructor name.
