Library Finds! (JP edition)

This is the first installment of a blog post we’ll feature four times a month.  Our team of Reference Librarians are able to see all the exciting new books that come in while also remaining familiar with the great older titles we have upstairs on the shelves.  Library Finds! will expose you to 10 of the titles you might not know we have that just might spark your interest, or help you with a paper 😉  These 10 titles are definitely intriguing to us – which is how they made the list!  Let us know if you’ve already read any of our featured titles or if you might go grab them now that you’ve seen some of what we have to offer!
