Fall Reading List

Fall Reading List

The fall equinox is September 22nd, and to celebrate our friendly librarians have selected some of our best fall reading for you to enjoy! Stop by our new display and peruse the books. Feel free to grab one of our book lists to help you make your decision. As always, you can ask a librarian or one of support staff for a recommendation. Is there a creepy book you want to read that we don’t have? No problem, Interlibrary Loan can help you find it.

Along with our display, staff have hidden fall leaves in the book stacks. If you find one, bring it to the Circulation desk for a free treat! Ten leaves will be hidden per day from September 22nd to the 30th.

University Special Collections & Archives

The University Archives are comprised of several collections of materials produced by the institution in the course of conducting its business. Materials date from as early as 1905, and include items as diverse as the deeds to the land the University occupies to the copper container used as the time capsule when the Administration Building was built. Materials are collected in all formats, including original papers and documents, publications, photographs, and audiotapes.
