New Books: April 30, 2009

April 30, 2009

beerHere’s a list of books we have recently acquired. Click on the links to check availability and location (the “New Books” location is a temporary one). Also, if the book is not checked out, any AU faculty, staff or graduate student can have a book delivered to an AU departmental office by filling in this form.

I thought this was a good summertime cover since some of us will have time to kick back and relax.
