Keeping Up with New Books

New books arrive at the Gustavus library every day. We’ve set up a handy RSS feed that helps you keep up-to-date with new arrivals. Our New Acquisitions feed is broken down by subject area and is a great way to find out what’s new. This is also a great tool if you’re a faculty member on […]
