Just inside the Current Periodicals Room is the new books area, where the latest science books to be cataloged are on display. New books are added daily. You can also view lists of new science books online.
New titles are displayed for about two weeks before being integrated into the collections on the 4th floor - each book contains a slip with the date it will leave the new book shelf. To borrow a new title, take the book to the Shapiro circulation desk on the first floor and ask them to place a hold on it for you; the book will stay on display until the date indicated on the slip, and afterwards will be waiting at the circulation desk for pick-up.
