Library materials added in August

To bring you up to date on what has recently been added to the collection, a new materials list is now available that reflects additions during August. We added 79 books during that time, thanks to your selections and suggestions. The list is sorted by call number, with items grouped roughly by subject area.  

This tag will show you all of the prior lists of new materials.  

Have a suggestion of something to order for the 2013/14 fiscal year? Use our online request form, email Jennifer Hicks or one of our other staff members, or drop by the library with your request at any time.  We are ready to plunge into our acquisitions budget for the year, and we need your requests to make that happen.  What do you need?  Let us know.

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

  • Your Miami ID is your library card!  
  • When you are off-campus, your Miami Unique ID and Password enable you to logon, search Miami's databases and eBook collections, and read or view the ones you like.
