As with our databases earlier in the year, our journal subscriptions are being updated. Initial changes have been made based on cost and usage statistics. We are maintaining a current list of periodical changes that you are welcome to view. Please note that we also have full text access to many journals through our database subscriptions.
Still, there may be resources (journals or other subscriptions) that you would like to see us retain, or new ones you’d like to see added. We value your input and you can still make recommendations by filling out our Database and Journal Suggestion Form.
If you have any questions or comments, please always feel free to reach out to the library staff.
Come check out the bargains on hundreds of books in the library book sale, December 5 – December 22. The library gets donations of books from the community all year long, and we are also “weeding” our own book collection on a regular basis, so we can pass along these books to you for a song! (Not literally–it’s also a fundraiser for the library–but the prices are low!)
- Children’s books 25 cents
Come browse and shop! Grab a last-minute gift or treat yourself with a book for break!!
As the year draws to a close, various book-related publications and news outlets post their picks of the best books of the year. There are also several book awards that choose finalists and winners each year. Your librarians compile these best books of the year lists and award winners on a guide, and also create a link to books from these lists the CU library has ordered or already added to our collection that you can find in our catalog. Take a look to find some of the best reads of the year!
We can’t purchase all the books on these lists, so if you see a book on one of these lists that the CU library doesn’t own, you can request the book through interlibrary loan (for CU students, faculty and staff only) or suggest the library purchase the book.
Of course the library has lots of books not on these lists for you to peruse and find the ones YOU think are best!
