New Call Numbers, New Books: World History

on February 26, 2014

Our children’s collection reorganization continues apace!

To give you an idea of what is in each new collection category, the next several posts here will feature new books from each new category.

Books in this collection primarily discuss the histories, geographies, cultures, and societies that no longer exist in our modern world, even if the place or monuments from it continue to exist (e.g. Machu Picchu, The Pyramids at Giza, the Colosseum). Ancient indigenous cultural groups that no longer exist may also be included in this collection (e.g. Aztecs, Incas). The distinction here is that these books discuss ancient societies as they were with little to no emphasis on the modern modalities of the place. Informational treatment of mythology will be placed here.

Today, here are a few new books from our World History area.
