Published Books

**********      A special note related to Covid-19:      *************
For the fall of 2020, in the interest of everyone's continued safety, we ask that students do not travel to the library's third floor to retrieve books.
We ask that you instead request books that you want to check out by sending a list of the titles you need to the Circulation Desk at: circdesk@berea.edu.
If you are on campus, the books will be pulled and checked out to you, for you to pick up at the Circulation Desk.
If you are off-campus, we will be glad to mail them to your home at no cost to you.
