Judge a Book by Its Cover: Explore New Library Titles

New Titles ScreenshotEvery month the library adds hundreds of books to its collection. It’s a lot to take in, so we’ve set up a new web page that makes it easier to browse recent acquisitions. You can see what’s arrived in the last few days or review acquisitions by month. The page illustrates the range of materials we get on a variety of legal topics as well as popular titles.

If you have an active library account, you can also set e-mail alerts for new titles that match your interests.

Finally, new books are put on display for a few days in the Williams Library Reading Room. They’re on the cart just inside the Reading Room entrance

Please let us know if you have any feedback on our “New Titles page”, if you have ideas for new books and resources we should add, or if you have any other suggestions for the library.
