New E-Books added to the catalogue

More e-books have been added to Alloway Library’s online catalogue this week. These titles are made available through TWU’s membership in COPPUL (Council of Prairie and Pacific University Libraries) and from ACLS- HEB (American Council of Learned Societies., History E-Book Project).

Several of the titles added will be of interest to researcher in nursing and health care:
