New resources at the USF Poly Library

Here are the items newly arrived at the USF Polytechnic Library during the month of April. As always, new circulating books are found in the “New books” stacks in the Group Study area; the new reference titles are being immediately shelved in their respective stacks.

Of note, we have started receiving the 2008 award-winning Children’s Books. See more details at the ALA website. More titles are coming.
