Don't forget the films!

The list above reflects our low number of new arrivals in January. February's list will be much longer. The short list of books provides the opportunity to remind you of the fact that we also are getting DVDs of films on and from South Asia. These are generally available in the Walter Library Smart Learning Commons and they are all in MNCAT. Several new films are in process and some 70 DVDs are on the way.
