If you entered CMHSL five years ago, you would have quickly found our general collection of print books, as it was predominately housed in the center of the largest room on the second floor of the library. Today, you’d have to look in the far reaches of the library, the Cabell Room, to find our general collection of books. Why? Because our print book collection is quickly becoming out-of-date as we purchase more ebooks. To illustrate, in 2013 we added 167 print books to our collection. During the same period of time, we added 1,072 ebooks. And that gap will grow larger in the years ahead. The reason is quite simple: ebooks are always available, they can be searched in a database, and they are where you need them/when you need them.
