Library Services has gone to the dogs. Well, we want to be sure our students can research the breeds, breeders, and controversies related to man’s best friend, anyway. Our new books this month cover just that, plus the following topics (and then some!):
- Human Evolution
- Stephen Hawking
- Graphic Design
- Renewable Resources
- Health and Wellness Issues
- Armed Forces
- Culinary Arts
- Daily Life in American History
Come by the top floor of Brown Library and take a look. See you soon!
Did you know that the Virginia Western Educational Foundation gives everyone the opportunity to help the book and eBook collections grow and stay relevant to students? The Brown Library Collections Fund collects donations to help the library purchase badly needed books and eBooks when our regular book budget is not enough. In addition, the Foundation’s flexible purchasing power allows the library to make purchases quickly, often in time to help students and faculty with specific assignments. Please consider donating to the fund this year. The library staff and the students we serve appreciate the generosity of those who have donated to this fund. We take seriously the responsibility of using your donations to the greatest benefit our academic community. Thank you!
