Where can I find popular books?
Due to library construction we no longer have a special location for Popular Books. Temporarily, Popular Books will be shelved in with the regular collection on the 2nd floor of the Sturgis Library. There is a very small selection of popular reading in the Sturgis Library on a book shelf acress from the Check Out Desk. This shelf does not contain all of our popular materials.
You can always check the catalog, though, if you're looking for a specific book. Or to view all popular titles, enter "New and Noteworthy" in the search box and select "Subject" from the drop-down menu. You will receive a list of all of our popular books, and then you can hone your search with the limiters on the left-hand side of the results list.
The Johnson Library's popular book section is housed on the first floor, in the casual reading area (next to the Hive computer lab). This section includes popular fiction and best sellers, most published within the past 2 years.
You can always check the libary catalog if you are looking for a specific book. Anything that is part of Johnson's current popular book collection will show up in the catalog with the location as "Johnson Feature Bookcase."
These books are subject to the same circulation policies as the rest of the collection, and may rotate out of this section as newer materials arrive.
