Grand Reading Room Books

Materials normally housed in the Grand Reading Room will be available in library room 208 until the carpet renovation is complete.

Writing Collection

The Writing Collection is a focused collection of writing handbooks, manuals, and similar resources selected to assist students with academic writing. It is a perfect complement to a Noel Studio consultation or an EKU Libraries reference appointment.

Popular Reads

This is a rotating collection of books for recreational reading. Only a few of these titles will become part of our permanent collection so get them while they are hot! These titles are arranged by author’s last name instead of a call number.

New Books

New books that support EKU’s curriculum and research needs are added to the Libraries’ collection at the request of faculty, students, librarians, and staff. These books are located in the Grand Reading Room for a year, after which they will be added to the main collection on the 4th floor.
