Find a good book to read over fall break

Posted on: | by Bridget Schumacher |

Are you looking for a good book to read over fall break?  The UB Libraries purchase a select assortment of leisure reading titles. Although we don’t have a leisure reading collection to physically browse, we do have a number of ways to go about finding a good book to read. Check out the questions and answers below to get started:

IS THERE A WAY TO BROWSE NEW FICTION TITLES AVAILABLE IN THE UB LIBRARIES?
There is not a physical collection to browse, but you can search the library catalog to see what recent fiction titles have been added. To do so, check out: Popular Fiction in the UB Libraries.

I HAVE A PARTICULAR AUTHOR OR TITLE IN MIND, HOW DO I SEARCH FOR THIS?
You can search the library catalog to see if books by a particular author are available in our collections. To do so, go to http://catalog.lib.buffalo.edu/, type in the name of the author, select the CATALOG –BY  AUTHOR drop-down menu and then click SEARCH.

If you know the title of the book you wish to read, go to http://catalog.lib.buffalo.edu/, type in the title of the book, select the CATALOG –BY  TITLE drop-down menu and then click SEARCH.

I HAVE A FAVORITE GENRE, CAN YOU SUGGEST A TITLE THAT I MIGHT ENJOY?
Our page on Pinterest (http://pinterest.com/ublibraries/) provides suggestions for popular fiction and non-fiction leisure reading titles.  You’ll find suggestions for science fiction, mystery, historical fiction, and more.

Happy reading!
