Like elves in a workshop, your friends at the Mudd Library have been busily preparing all kinds of great new stuff during winter break. We’d like to take a moment to highlight a few.
JSTOR Arts & Sciences VIII: This set has been added to our existing JSTOR electronic database collection. By adding this collection, we have increased our JSTOR access to core humanities journals, as well as new titles in philosophy, classical studies, and music. In addition to modern journals, it also contains “a group of rare 19th and early 20th century American Art periodicals digitized as part of “a special project undertaken with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Frick Collection, and the Brooklyn Museum of Art.”
Interested in watching some classic musicals? We now have DVDs of some of the best, including (but not limited to) Fiddler on the Roof, Bye Bye Birdie, and Annie Get Your Gun. Speaking of classics, we have also just added the entire set of the original Japanese Godzilla movies.
We’ve recently acquired some very interesting books from a wide variety of genres. Read Tonight No Poetry Will Serve, written by one of the “essential voices of our time,” Adrienne Rich. Our collection of dance resources has been greatly expanded with titles such as, Envisioning Dance on Film and Video. Learn about the archaeological field of prehistoric warfare with Warfare in Prehistoric Britain. Need something to reinforce your fears of a zombie apocalypse? Check out the most recent volumes of the terrifying and amazing, The Walking Dead.
We’ve also added some new video games, including what has been referred to as, “the Wii game we’ve been waiting for,” The Legend of Zelda : Skyward Sword. Three Xbox 360 games have also been purchased, and will soon be ready for checkout.
Of course, this is just a small sampling of some of our new acquisitions. After you’ve enjoyed your winter holiday festivities, stop by the library and take a look!
