The 334 newest books in the English language collection

There are more than 3660 English language books in the ESTEC library; with genres including Fiction, Mystery, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Historical, Non-Fiction, Children’s books, etc.  Books that are new to the collection are displayed at the ends of the shelves, face-out, so that browsers can see the cover of the books.  When a book is added to the collection, part of the processing includes a date stamp to indicate when the book was purchased.  Typically books are kept on display for one year.

To make it easier for readers who do not have a chance to visit the collection or for those who find it easier to “shop” with a list, the tables below contain the almost 450 new English language books that have been purchased since October 2010.

The column to the right lists awards, recognitions, and whether the book is part of a series.

Happy reading!
