Best Books of 2018

‘Tis the season!  The season when editors of various publications come out with their year-end lists of the best books of the year, that is.  Your library staff has compiled a list of those lists!  See our guide to the Best Books of 2018Here’s a list of some books from these lists the CU library already owns.

Once you take a look at the best books lists and would like to read one of these books, check the library catalog to see if a VSC library owns the book.   If not, CU faculty, staff, and students can request a book through interlibrary loan.  If there is a book the CU library doesn’t own that you think we should, let us know.  Email us at

To make an interlibrary loan request, click the Interlibrary Loan System link on the library website.  Log in with your CU credentials and then click on “Create Request.”

‘Tis also the season when time to read is on the horizon.  Enjoy a “best book” this winter break!
