Every year, the McMaster libraries add tens of thousands of new books, e-books, journals, and online resources to the collection, spanning the wide range of subject areas that the libraries support.

It can be challenging for faculty and students to keep up as new items flow into the library each day, but there’s a tool built into the Library Catalogue to help everyone do just that.

Using the "New Items" feature on the Library website, users can see the most recent additions to McMaster library collections from the previous day, the last 5 days, or the last 30 days. Results can be narrowed further by format, author, topic, language, region, or time period. Users can place a hold on most books and other physical items to be notified when they arrive, and when the search looks just right, they can create a feed to their favorite reader and have results delivered automatically.

“The University Library is committed to supporting students and researchers with a wide variety of resources,” says Wade Wyckoff, Associate University Librarian. "We know that many of our faculty and students are interested in seeing new materials available for their research or studies.  We hope that this feature will make that a little easier."
