Interlibrary loans

All library materials are due on December 6, so the library will no longer request books through interlibrary loan. We will continue to request articles through interlibrary loan until the end of the semester, however.

Join the library student focus group!

We will be holding two student focus groups, one on November 22 and one on December 1 at 12:30 p.m. in Study Room E. Please consider joining us at either time. (Did I mention there will be free pizza, drinks and brownies?)

There's no preparation involved; just give us your opinions. (And did I mention there will be free pizza, drinks and brownies?) For instance, how can we better serve you? How do you want the library to look?

If you would like to attend, simply e-mail Crystal Newell at, or just drop by. We'll definitely take walk-ins! See you then, and come hungry!

Books, books, and more books

We are less than 28 days away from the last day of regular classes. Coincidentally, that's how long you can check out a book. Perfect timing I think considering we have a whole bunch of new books for you (and just in time for the holidays)!

Are you traveling this Thanksgiving? Then take a look at our new books on CD -- Flight Lessons, Glimmer Palace, and The Chopin Manuscript: A Serial Thriller.

And speaking of Thanksgiving, with all the food that you will be eating, you might want to read this beforehand. America's Food: What You Don't Know About What You Eat.

Are you a big sports fan? If so, we recently added quite a few titles for the sports aficionado.
Can You Name That Team?: A Guide to Professional Baseball, Football, Soccer, Hockey, and Basketball Teams and Leagues
Love Me, Hate Me: Barry Bonds and the Making of an Antihero
Willie Mays: The Life, the Legend
Tiki: My Life in the Game and Beyond
The Ball Is Round: A Global History of Soccer
Open: An Autobiography

Do final papers have you going crazy? Well, you might be in good company with a History of Madness.

Is science beautiful? It is to George Johnson who discusses the Ten Most Beautiful Experiments.

Of course, like always, this is just a sample of our most recent titles. The new books list has more. So be sure to check out a few, especially before Thanksgiving break!
