New Acquisitions

The Eileen J. Garrett Library is always expanding both through an active purchase plan and through donations made to the library by authors, colleagues, researchers and patrons. Although the Library is open by appointment only, acquisitions still continue. A very limited list of recent titles acquired in recent years follows but this is by no means a complete list as generally the library grows by over 100 volumes per year.
