In addition to our main circulating collection and Reference Collection, Reed Library has several smaller collections for more specific patron needs:
With the exception of Archives & Special Collections, all of the Library's collections are available at any time the Library is open. If you have any questions regarding these or other collections, please ask a librarian.
The Library's newest additions to our circulating collection are displayed on the Library's first floor, opposite the Circulation Desk and across from the Reference Desk.
New books have the same loan periods as all other circulating materials.
Reed Library offers a collection of nearly 1000 DVDs for educational and leisure viewing. The DVD Collection is located across from the New Books shelves, on the Library's first floor near the computers.
DVDs are loaned for one week. The overdue fine is $1 per day. DVDs are arranged by the accession number shown on the spine of the case, and in the call number in the catalog. These represent the order in which the Library received the DVDs, and do not necessarily represent new releases.
In recognition of the extra-curricular needs of students, faculty, staff, and the community, the library maintains a small Leisure Reading Collection made up of donations and regular purchases of mass-market books of general interest, including fiction, popular nonfiction, and graphic novels. Items in this collection which are in poor condition will be weeded on a regular basis without replacement.
The Leisure Reading Collection is located near the entrance to the Carnahan-Jackson Center.
You may also wish to look for leisure reading in the Library's main collection or in the Juvenile Collection, which includes young adult novels as well as children's books.
Most fiction in the main collection can be found under the following call numbers:
The Literacy Collection, of particular interest to English language learners, consists of literary works grouped in different stages based on word count and difficulty level. Titles include classic fiction including The Secret Garden, Far From the Madding Crowd, and The Joy Luck Club; biographies of figures including Shakespeare and Gandhi; nonfiction bestsellers such as Eat, Pray, Love; and original fiction and nonfiction. The collection is shelved between the Oversized Reference Materials and the Very Short Introduction Collection. The stages range from Starter to Stage 6.
