Reminder: Suggest a Title for Our Popular Reading Collection

April 21, 2017

Want to read that latest bestseller you keep hearing about? Need a copy of a new title for your book club? We are always seeking recommendations for our Popular Reading Collection. This collection is comprised of 200 books with 25 to 30 titles being cycled in every quarter based on patron recommendations, staff suggestions and picks from the New York Times’ Best Sellers list.

The purpose of the collection is to offer the City of Hope community both fiction and nonfiction titles to browse and borrow. Titles include:

  • recent bestselling titles by popular authors
  • biographies
  • humor
  • popular science writing
  • much more

If we’re unable to get a copy through our vendor, we can work with you to get it through interlibrary loan.

If you would like to make a suggestion, please contact Brian Chambers, Discovery & Access librarian, at bchambers@coh.org or ext. 87497.


The Infinite Library: Presentation and Training on March 29th

March 20, 2017

Do our 16,000+ books and 40,000+ journals cover everything our patrons need? Certainly not. Thankfully, there is interlibrary loan.

Interlibrary loan is a service whereby a user of one library can borrow books or receive copies of documents that are owned by another library. Through our networks, we are able to supplement our collection to provide our patrons with nearly everything they need: hence the idea of the Infinite Library.

Learn more at our 45-minute hands-on session. The basics of accessing electronic resources, an introduction to interlibrary loan and document delivery, and an overview of related copyright laws will be covered. You will leave this session with tips and tricks for how to better access our online journals and books as well as how to place requests using ILLiad, our online document delivery and interlibrary loan system.

The session is scheduled for March 29th at 2:00pm in the Graff Library (Room G112). Laptops will be provided. Please visit here to register.

For more information, contact Brian Chambers at bchambers@coh.org or ext. 88614.

March 17, 2017

Great news! We just added three new journals to our collection:

If you would like more information, please contact us at library@coh.org or ext. 87497.
