New resources at the USFP and FIPR Libraries

Here are the latest arrivals for the month of January. As always, circulating books are located in the New Books shelves in the back of the room. Reference and Faculty Publications are shelved immediately in their proper stacks.

There are several exciting things to note:

  • an addition to our USF Polytechnic Faculty Publications Special Collection, Gesichtspunkte : aktuelle Lesetexte von gestern, heute und morgen, co-authored by the Education Division Director, Dr. John Liontas.
  • you’ll notice a fair amount of books on the Detroit Tigers. 2011 marks the 75th anniversary of Tigers spring training in Lakeland, the longest running training camp in baseball history. Starting February 7th until the end of March, the USF Poly Library will hold an exhibit on spring training in Lakeland.
  • and finally, a big addition to this list. We will be now listing the new books received at the Florida Industrial and Phosphate Research Institute (FIPR) Library along with the new books received at the USF Poly Library. See a book you like in the other library? Request by interlibrary loan. The FIPR new books are immediately shelved in their proper location. Thank you to Karen Stewart, Director of the FIPR Library for the idea and the list.
