New College Library has a regular display of new books at the far end of the Library Hall, close to the door to the stacks.

Also new is An unusual relationship : Evangelical Christians and Jews, by Yaʻaḳov Ariʼel at BR1641.J83 Ari.
These titles were purchased for Religious Studies at the School of Divinity, Edinburgh University.
You can see an regularly updated list of new books for New College Library on the Library Catalogue – choose the New Books Search and limit your search to New College Library. Here’s a quick link to new books arriving in the last few weeks. A word of caution – some of the books listed here may still be in transit between the Main Library (where they are catalogued) and New College Library, so not on the shelf just yet.
