Recommendations for titles, read-alikes or DVDs

Do you need a change from your usual reading material? If so, try Ebsco Novelist which you will find in Online Resources in the above tab section. Novelist will suggest read-alikes and similar authors.

Want to learn something new but don't want to pour over textbooks, try our Great Courses educational DVD sets. There is an array of history, science, cooking, philosophy and religion courses which may consist of 6 to 36 lectures. View the collection in Catalog Search in the upper right. 

Do you need to binge? Try our TV series. Keep in mind that some series are very popular and you may have to reserve certain seasons.
