    Consider Putting Your Textbooks on Reserve in Steely

    The Department of Communication recently placed all of their General Education textbooks on reserve in Steely, making them available for limited checkout to all students.

    We want you to consider doing the same!

    Students don't always have their textbooks readily available. Whether they haven't purchased their textbooks because they are waiting to complete the financial aid process, or if they simply forget one of their books at home or in their dorm during the semester, making textbooks available via Reserve at Steely can help students overcome one of the many challenges they might face over the course of their time at NKU.

    To place textbooks on Reserve, or for more information, fill out the form on our Course Reserves page.
