New Books & DVDs

The Millsaps-Wilson Library continuously adds new materials to the library’s collections, and we will start sharing a selection of the newest titles in this blog.

If you have any trouble locating these items in the library, please ask for help at the front desk.  Also, the library showcases the newest books on a bookshelf to the west of the front desk and across from the Digital Media Lab (DML).  Check this display area often for interesting reads.

New DVDs are listed separately at the bottom of this post. 

Of special note, the DVD Murderabilia (DVD-664) is a short film written and produced by Millsaps alumnus and Public Services Librarian Ryan Roy.  Two other Millsaps alumni with books on this list are Gaston Hall’s As the Days Draw In and Jack Boettcher’s Theater-State.
