New Titles Tuesday! The A-List

Nearly 120,000 ebooks were added to Alloway Library’s collection since December 6.  That’s like adding a whole new library to our existing collection – and certainly more than we can fit on our New Titles shelf! These new additions will be among the search results when you  use the library catalogue.
To give you an idea of the scope of material added, here is a selection of titles from the first 6,000 titles on the list.  To view these titles online, search for the title in the catalogue. (TWU username and password may be required.)
