Ohio Wesleyan University's Wesleyan Council for Student Affairs (WCSA) sponsors a textbook reserve program. Through this program, WCSA purchases textbooks that are used in 100 and 200 level courses, and puts them on reserve in the Beeghly Library. Faculty have the choice to opt-out of the program, but the vast majority of faculty participate in this program. Textbooks can be checked out for a period of time, but the textbooks cannot leave the library. Questions about the program can be directed to the University librarians.
**Fall 2020 Information: Due to restrictions and guidance around the lending of textbooks via the library, the library has used WCSA funds to purchase unlimited electronic access to 13 different titles spread between 100, 200, 300, and 400 level courses. Please check with the library to discuss options and to see if the text you need is available as a electronic resource.
There are currently no funds available to assist students with renting their textbooks through the Bookstore. Students should check with the library to see if they have the option of obtaining the book through an electronic resource or not. Also new this year, students are now able to charge their textbooks to their student account. More information about charging textbooks to your student account can be obtained via the Bookstore, and questions around options for paying off your student balance, to include any textbook charges can be directed to the Bursar's Office.
