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

We are adding many new items to the collection each month, and making sure that you can see them on display! Take a look at our New Books shelves or skim down our new materials list of items we added to the collection in October! We added 201 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: 

  • Why are we yelling? : the art of productive disagreement / Buster Benson
  • The ethics of hospitality : an interfaith response to US immigration policies / Helen T. Boursier
  • Fragile nation, shattered land : the modern history of Syria / James A. Reilly
  • The fire is upon us : James Baldwin, William F. Buckley Jr., and the debate over race in America / Nicholas Buccola
  • She came to slay : the life and times of Harriet Tubman / Erica Armstrong Dunbar
  • Unbound : how inequality constricts our economy and what we can do about it / Heather Boushey
  • Solitary non-employed persons : empirical research on hikikomori in Japan / Yuji Genda
  • Testosterone : an unauthorized biography / Rebecca M. Jordan-Young, Katrina Karkazis
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 look out for, or general subject areas we should build up in the collection.

Thank you for all of your suggestions and requests!  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!
