The Washington and Lee University Library now offers an online list of all the books located in our New Books Shelf area.
Naturally, we will revise this list periodically, perhaps as often as weekly.
If you have comments or questions, you can contact Head of Technical Services Laura Turner or Access Services Manager Elizabeth Teaff.
The Friends of the Library of Washington and Lee University have come through in a big way to support the mission of the University Library.
In an era of belt-tightening, the Friends’ generosity has helped us to try to maintain a quality research collection through the purchase of several highly-respected resources.
Two Friends-funded multi-volume works already have been added to our collection: Oxford Companion to the Book and Oxford Dictionary of the Middle Ages.
Another item, the seven-volume Encyclopedia of U.S. Political History, will be available within a few months.
Furthermore, the Friends have contibuted the support for us to continue in 2010-11 our subscriptions to two highly valuable online services — Europa World Plus Online and Value Line Research Online Center.
Without the support of the Friends of the Library, our level of service — and our students — would have suffered in 2010-11. Many thanks to our Friends!
