Books for Learning and Personal Development Week

Staff from Organizational Development in HR have generously donated books related to the classes offered during Learning and Personal Development Week.  The books, listed below, will be on display above the new book shelf in the library for the next week or two.  After that, they will be added to our Career and Professional Development Collection, housed in the Graduate School Reading Room.  Many thanks to HR for their generous donation, as well as for the great classes offered this week!
