New resources at the USF Poly Library

Here are the books newly arrived at the USF Polytechnic Library during the month of August. As always, new circulating books and Children’s Books are found in the “New books” stacks in the Group Study area; the new reference books are being immediately shelved in the Reference stacks.

To note, the volume “Turning two : baseball’s classic keystone combinations” was written by The Ledger sport editor John Valerino. We also received donations, including some by a graduating student.
