Finding New books
Not only can you browse the new books shelf at the Dewey Library, but you can browse these titles online through Minerva as well. A new feature, called “New Titles��? lets you browse new items by subject, exploring all three of the University Libraries. New titles are not only books but new journals and other media added to our collection as well.
When you first open up Minerva, you will see several tabs running the top of the page. The New Titles tab is all the to to the far right. Click on it and you will be brought to a new window displaying subjects according to call number.
For example, if you are looking for new titles in Law, you will ckick on “K – Law��? since most law titles are under a call number beginning with the letter K. Once you click, the page will anchor towards the Law section on the page, displaying all the new titles recently added in the past month. You will see that 8 new titles have been added to the collection.
All new titles are hyperlinks that when clicked brings you to the online record for the item. This is helpful because the record tells you what library you can find the item in.
