The University gave the library extra money this year to buy more books – new titles and extra copies of well used titles. Library staff have been busy buying the titles you need for your module reading lists and some for wider reading too. Many of these have been recommended by you or inspired by hearing about what you are researching for your assignments.
Here are just some of the new books for fine art…
