Textbooks

The library, when able, will make available copies of required textbooks through our Course Reserves.  If not available, please check the OhioLINK catalog to see if an OhioLINK library has a copy to borrow.  If a copy is not available for borrowing, please confer with the university bookstore or consider an online textbook reseller.

Course Reserves 

Course Reserves consist primarily of textbooks or books owned by the Franklin University Library that are assigned as required or supplemental readings for Franklin courses. Additionally, Faculty members may place personal copies of materials on Course Reserve for their courses.   

Franklin Bookstore

Students may purchase textbooks, educational materials, Franklin logo clothing and more at the Franklin Bookstore!
