New books added to the Gardner-Harvey Library in April!

See our new materials list of items we added to the collection in April! We added 195 books, e-books, DVDs, and other items during that time, thanks to your selections and suggestions. The list is sorted by call number, with items grouped roughly by subject area.

Here are eight titles from the list, to give you an idea of what we've been buying:
  • Stand firm : resisting the self‐improvement craze / Svend Brinkman
  • No one cares about crazy people : the chaos and heartbreak of mental health in America / Ron Powers
  • Killers of the Flower Moon : the Osage murders and the birth of the FBI / David Grann
  • Madame President : the extraordinary journey of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf / Helene Cooper
  • Another economy is possible : culture and economy in a time of crisis / Manuel Castells
  • Prison food in America / Erika Camplin
  • A colony in a nation / Chris Hayes
  • The stars are fire : a novel / Anita Shreve
This tag will show you all of the prior lists of new materials, in reverse chronological order. We are eager to hear from you about individual items you would like us to buy, or types of items we should be on the lookout for, or general subject areas we should build up in the collection.

There is still time to add books from this year's budget!  Your input will help us keep the collection working well as we add items during the remainder of the 2016/17 academic year  We're looking forward to what you'll recommend next!

If you have a suggestion of something to order, please use our "Tell GHL to Buy It" form, email Amy Carmichael (, or drop by the library with your request. And pass your general suggestions or comments about the collection to us in those same ways.

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