We have a new book display called "The Heat Is On," which highlights books that focus on Summer, the sun, and heat (appropriate considering the weather we've been having, no?) Books included cover everything from using sunlight in architecture to books giving introductions to the fundamentals of heat transfer. You can check out the display on the 2nd floor of the Duderstadt Center. Enjoy!

For the month of March, we decided to highlight some of the books in our collection that explore the idea of being "retro." Though most of us have a general idea of what people mean when they refer to something as retro, it's interesting to explore some of the different facets of the term, from interior design patterns to video game themes.
