The Thompson Library has a range of shelves dedicated to new books just to the right of the Reference Desk as you walk into the library. We keep new titles on the shelves in that location for a couple of months after they are received before they are shelved into the main collection. We classify new books as books that have just been received that have been published within the last three years.
We also have a collection of popular titles called the Browsing Collection that is near the Circulation Desk in the middle of the third floor. These books are primarily bestsellers from the last year or two. They are divided by fiction on the front side and non-fiction on the back side.
