Library Services regularly updates sections of the collection and will often get bursts of new books on a particular subject. Our latest burst is on agriculture. This was an especially hard topic to buy for because there seems to be very little that’s not either a how to type textbook or extremely critical of modern agriculture. We’ve tried our best to include both sides, but if you know of other titles we should add, please let us know. There are more books on these topics available in the circulating collection at the same call numbers. These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.
