New library materials added in March

The March new materials list is now available. We added 104 books, DVDs, and other items during the month,thanks to your selections and suggestions.  The list is sorted by call number, with items grouped roughly by subject area.

New this month is the addition of 17 e-books to our collection and to our new materials list.  The books are available for reading from the MU catalog.

We’ve added a total of 597 items to the collection in this academic year.  We'll keep posting new item lists through the end of the fiscal year on our blog (this tag will show you all of the prior lists).

Have a suggestion of something to order? We're past our selector/departmental ordering deadline for the year, but some acquisitions money is still available for anyone to order materials. 

Use our online request form, email one of our staff members, or drop by the library with your request. Whatever cannot be ordered under this year's budget will be rolled into next year's purchases.

Thanks again for keeping our collection vibrant and your information needs met!

Mural Competition Deadline Extended!

Been to the library lately? You may have noticed that we are making a few changes to how the library looks and we want your help. Gardner-Harvey Library is expanding on our previous Mural Painting competition to add some color and art to another part of the library. The competition is open to all Miami University students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members. Participants have the option of submitting an individual or group design.
