You can search the University Libraries Catalog for books by ISBN.

This video tutorial or this step-by-step tutorial explain how to locate the ISBN from the University Store, then search for that book in the UW Libraries catalog. Options for obtaining the book through Prospector or Request It are explained.

Please be aware that in general the UW Libraries do not have required textbooks for most courses. It would be cost-prohibitive to purchase single copies of textbooks required for all the courses available at UW, much less multiple copies.
