Library Spotlight: New Books

New books are added to the library collection throughout the academic year. When shelf ready, titles are featured in the new books area on library main floor, near the computers and recreational reading. Each title has been selected by AU librarians and is subject to the library's collection development policy which includes professional reviews and faculty recommendations.


Interested in recommending a title for the library collection?  Contact your library liaison.

The Instructional Resource Center Blog routinely provides information regarding new additions to the IRC, juvenile, and education collections.
