Course Content at McDermott Library

Your guide to textbooks, multimedia, electronic reading lists and other course materials available at the Eugene McDermott Library.


One of the most popular questions heard at the Eugene McDermott Library is "Do you have my textbook?"

While it is not possible to maintain a comprehensive, up-to-date collection for every offered course, McDermott Library endeavors to make all undergraduate core textbooks available each semester. Many additional reading materials required of UT Dallas curricula are part of the Library's general collections and online databases.

In this guide, you will learn about locations and how to search for textbooks and other course materials, such as DVDs and online reading lists of articles and book chapters constructed by your professor.
