About Books

Many of the library's engineering books are available in e-book format and can be read online on any device. We also have a print book collection which includes older editions of some basic engineering textbooks.

However we do not purchase textbooks for every course. 

Chemical engineering books you can check out

Books available for borrowing by students and faculty are available on the 4th floor of Campbell Library. The primary area to browse for chemical engineering is TP (Chemical Technology). You may also wish to look in QD (Chemistry), TS (Manufacturing) and RS (Pharmacy).

When you've located the book you need and have the call number (for example: TP5064.M89 2018), find it on the shelf and use your Rowan card to check it out at the first floor service desk.
