Browsing the Library

New for Spring semester: The Library’s “Browsing” collections on the 2nd (main) floor. When you enter the Library, walk straight ahead into the Browsing collections, which include:

Browsing DVDs: Popular feature films have been separated and are arranged by their titles for easy browsing (some of these are still in process, getting their labels). The rest are still arranged by call numbers.

Browsing VHS tapes: These are arranged by call numbers. We are still in the process of moving them from the 1st-floor Media Center to the 2nd floor, so bear with us. Everything is listed in the library catalog, of course.

Browsing Books: This set includes recent print fiction and non-fiction, audio books, and graphic novels, as well as the New Book Island, which contains books received in the last 2 months.

In the future the Browsing are will include the CDs (also in order by call numbers). Right now they are still in the 1st-floor Media Center.

There is also comfortable seating, and the newest issues of newspapers and several magazines are at hand too. The Food for Thought cafe is available nearby for a snack and beverage.

Coming soon: a large-screen TV that can play DVDs or cable channels like CNN.

You are invited to join us…relax, get the latest news, find something enjoyable to read, listen to, or watch. Let us know how you like it! And if you have any questions about finding anything, please Ask a Librarian for help.
