Recently Added Books and eBooks

What’s new?  Well, at least what’s new in Reference, the Social Sciences, Music, and History, which are my primary areas for selection.  Since many of these titles (particularly the ebooks!) don’t make an initial stop on our New Books display near the Main Circulation Desk, it’s always nice to see a representative sampling of what’s currently available.

It’s arranged in rough call number order after the first several titles: the books are easy to arrange, but since ebooks don’t come with call numbers, I’ve arranged them by best guess.  I’ve added an occasional annotation as well.

(While I give call numbers for the books and you can usually use QuickSearch on our home page to find the ebooks these days, often the best way to find ebooks is to click on the ‘Ebooks’ link beneath the QuickSearch box and copy the title into the second search box.)

These first two titles sound a little like treatises on Druidic mysticism, but they actually feature a great variety of highly visual examples of how knowledge has been depicted through history up to the present, each organized by the primary style of presentation used: circle or tree formats.  Lima’s books have been compared with Edward Tufte’s works on information presentation; both titles make for inspirational and delightful browsing:
