The Thompson Library has a shelf of new books near the Reference Desk on the 3rd floor of the library. We keep new books on the shelves in that location for a couple of months after they are received before they are shelved into the Main Collection or one of the other collections. 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 one side and non-fiction on the other side.
