# Books at the library

Due the generosity of my colleagues in the math department, several boxes of mathematics books are donated to the Vasche Library every semester. Some of these books are new textbooks sent to us by the publishers, some are older editions of a current textbook, while others are just popular books about mathematics.
If the old edition at the library is close enough to the current one, you may be able to save yourself \$100 on a new book. If you are not satisfied with your current textbook or just want to see the material presented in a different way, try looking through these alternatives. Below are my best guesses for which book complements which class.
Apparently gifts are given a low cataloging priority at the library, so these books may not be on the stacks yet. If there is a book you are dying to get your hands on, just let me know. I will see if I can speed up the process for you.
