Reading Recommendations

Having trouble finding a book you would really like to read? Consider scheduling a meeting with a readers’ adviser.

If you are interested in exploring the classics of literature, learning about the emerging political and social concerns (such as the #MeToo movement or reconciliation) or would like to engage in systematic and meaningful reading of books that have enduring cultural, historical, or social value, a readers’ adviser can help.

The goal of the readers’ advisory service is to encourage lifelong learning through purposeful extracurricular reading of print books and to guide patrons in the discovery of the library’s collection.

The service is available to all students and faculty, only by appointment. 

Please contact Agatha Barc (Reader Services and Instruction Librarian) to schedule a consultation and discuss your reading interests and goals.

Finding Great Books

We also offer a number of resources to help readers identify interesting titles for their reading pleasure. We publish monthly lists of the recent acquisitions to our collections. New books are displayed on the second floor of the library.

Our annotated reading lists include recommended fiction and nonfiction titles.
