Physical collections

The libraries have a number of collections beyond the books and journals in the stacks. Several are kept at the Newman Circulation Desk or have shorter checkout periods. See our borrowing privileges page for details.

The Popular Reading Collection is made up of best sellers and recently published fiction and non-fiction, this collection is located on the interior wall beside the second floor Learning Commons. All the nonfiction books are on the left-most shelving area in call number order. The fiction books are on the right two shelving areas in call number order.

These books check out for 21 days and can be renewed one time. Overdue fines are $1/day, regardless of borrower's status. These books cannot be recalled, but you can place a hold to be next in line to check them out. You can also request an available book and we'll pull it for you in advance of your visit, just like all other available books in Newman. See a complete list of this collection online.
