Our first batch of Popular Reading books has arrived!
These books are part of our new Gleeson Popular Reading Collection (GPOP), obtained through a subscription service called a “McNaughton” plan.
We’ll be adding to this collection over the coming months, and ultimately should end up with approximately 300 titles which will be a mix of recent fiction and non-fiction award-winners and bestsellers. We select the titles, and can return books that aren’t circulating.
For now, the books can be found on the right-hand side of the New Book shelves in the lobby, and their green spine labels will identify them as belonging to this collection. In the catalog, their location is “Gleeson Popular Reading”. Books can be checked out for 30 days for all USF patrons, but they are not eligible for ILL or Link + request.
If you have any questions, suggestions or other feedback, please let me know!
