If you haven’t ordered your textbooks yet, now is the time to do it. Required textbooks are not available from the Capella Library, but our friends at the bookstore are ready and willing to assist you.
If you don’t know which books you need, you can find out by going to the bookstore website and searching for your course number. If the bookstore lists a resource as required for your course, then you must either purchase it or find some other option to obtain it.
Optional Books are not necessarily in the library, but there are several ways you may be able to obtain them, aside from purchasing:
2. If the full text of an optional book is NOT available through the library, you may go to the Interlibrary Loan request page, fill out a form and we will request the item for you from another library. Books that are required for any course may not be requested through interlibrary loan. Please note: Books take 7-10 business days to arrive.
3. Search Worldcat.org to see if a local library has it. Even if a local library looks like it has your book(s), make sure to contact the library before traveling there.
If your particular question about textbooks wasn’t answered here, you can contact the main Capella line: 1-888-227-3552 for help.
