NOTE:  If you're looking for a course textbook, remember that not all classes use library books as required readings.   Click here to find out where your textbook is located.


1.  Ask the APUS librarians to help you find similar books that are available online in our library.   Research is what we do best!

2.  If you live near another library, search WorldCat ( for the book.  Enter your zip code to see a list of libraries near you that have a copy (see a video below).  

  • Borrowing policies will vary from library to library, but most will allow you to visit to read or make copies. Contact each library to find out about its policies.
  • If you hold a library card at a nearby library, ask the librarians there about interlibrary loan services. 

3.  Submit an interlibrary loan (ILL) request through the APUS library.  We can attempt to borrow the book from another library on your behalf.
