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

See our new materials list of items we added to the collection in January! We added 171 books, e-books, DVDs, and other items during that time, thanks to your selections and suggestions. The list can be sorted by call number, area of our collection, or by title.

Here are eight titles from the list, to give you an idea of what we've been buying:
  • Giving reasons : an extremely short introduction to critical thinking / by David R. Morrow
  • Three stones make a wall : the story of archaeology / Eric H. Cline
  • When they call you a terrorist : a Black Lives Matter memoir / Patrisse Khan-Cullors and Asha Bandele
  • When Montezuma met Cort├ęs : the true story of the meeting that changed history / Matthew Restalln
  • Evolution's bite : a story of teeth, diet, and human origins / Peter S. Ungar
  • Thriving in an all-boys club : female police and their fight for equality / Cara Rabe-Hemp
  • You must be very intelligent : the PhD delusion / Karin Bodewits
  • Everything happens for a reason : and other lies I've loved / Kate Bowler
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.

This month we're adding some new materials along with replacements for items that have gone missing from the collection (and those that patrons have chosen to replace). 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 (carmicae@miamioh.edu), 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!
