Hidden gems

Copyrighted material.

World Travel: A Guide to International Ecojourneys 

Today's featured title is something from the "G" section. For those of you dying to know, "G" is the Library of Congress' letter designating books covering geography, anthropology, and recreation.

This title is chock full of travel information and is pretty to look at with its many full-color photographs. Destinations include all continents and terrains, featuring trips for just about anyone.

It is only one of many titles we have covering the world and its countries, people, sights, flora, and fauna. Find it on the lower level at G 155 .A1 W68 1996.

About our book collection

The library is constantly working to select and purchase hard-copy books to support the Richland College curriculum and students' needs.

Not only does this mean the librarians are putting new items on the shelves, but it means that we are regularly working to relabel and repair our older titles or send away books that are no longer used.

This process, much like weeding and feeding a lawn, helps us to highlight what is relevant, fresh, and fun. When we see hidden gems in the stacks, we would like our students, faculty, and staff to come check them out.

The Richland College Library has some 75,000 books for checking out, so there are plenty to go around. Come on over to the library and head to the lowest level to see what treasure you might discover.
