You may find some of these books in the New Books display on the 1st floor of the Main Library, where a selection of new books from all subjects across the University are held. Books on these display shelves can be borrowed as normal.

In the Library Catalogue there is also an option to search for new books added to the Library’s collections from the last four weeks, just click on the “New Books” tab.

If looking for a book that has just been newly added to the Library’s collections and you can’t find it on the shelf please ensure you check the New Books display on the 1st floor and/or the Recent Returns shelves on the appropriate floor (shelfmarks starting A-N on 2nd floor, P-Z on 3rd floor). You may want to also double-check the Catalogue record to see if the item is actually in the HUB Collection (ground floor).
