Acquisitions Update

As many of our frequent visitors know, each term, the Library makes available a useful list of select “recent acquisitions,” broken down by publication format.  In addition, we strive to prominently display new materials that we think will be of most interest to our users, both in the library and on our website.  But did you know that the vast majority of new holdings are not listed in the Recent Acquisitions list, and are too plentiful to be put on display?  In fact, between January 1, 2009 and April 30, 2009, the Library ordered approximately 1800 new items in all formats.  So, we encourage users to check the Biblion catalog frequently, as well as to browse the stacks – you never know what you might find, as we receive new items on a daily basis.

We don’t have what you’re looking for?  The Library welcomes suggestions for future purchases.  You may fill out the online form, or e-mail the Collection Development Librarian at eahearn@exeter.edu.  Please be advised that all suggestions will be evaluated by a Librarian, and due to the volume of suggestions we receive, turnover time for non-urgent items may be several weeks.
