Browse Our New Books

If you’re on-campus, you can still browse the New Books  collection near the Library front door!  It’s been refreshed with new print books purchased this Summer.  Books are moved to the Circulating shelves after 6 months – so the New Books area has a bookstore feel to it!

Can’t come in right now?  No problem – you can see the New Books virtually!  Take a look at  September’s NEW print titles – as well as this month’s  NEW eBook titles. Each month, the newest titles are uploaded to the RaiderSearch Catalog Featured Lists.  For Circulating print books, you can click the [Request] link in the Catalog record and follow the screen prompts to have  the book placed onto the Hold Shelf  for you, or, it can be mailed to your home or office.  For eBooks, click the full-text link, logon with your last name and 7-digit Raider number, and start reading!
