What is the Bestsellers Collection?

The Bestsellers Collection is a small rotating collection of titles covering various topics and genres outside the regular library collection scope with a focus on recreational reading.

Book selection and recommendations

Titles are selected by a committee comprised of librarians, library staff and student volunteers. To make recommendations to the committee, please contact Sam Wittenberg and put “Bestsellers” in the Subject line. Due to the small size of the collection, we will not be able to collect complete sets for long-running series.

Where can I find the collection?

The Bestsellers Collection is located on the 3rd floor of the library in the reading lounge area adjacent to the computer lab. The bookcase is located in between the study rooms.

Checking out items from the Bestsellers Collection

Items from the Bestsellers Collection are available to patrons for a 4-week checkout period with the option of 1 renewal. Up to five (5) books may be checked out at one time. For more information on circulation policies, please read Circulation Services and Policies.

Fines and overdue items
