What is the Popular Reading Collection?

The POP Reading Collection at UNM’s Zimmerman Library has a great selection of recently released books when you are looking for a break from your studies.


What is the POP Reading Collection and where is it located?

This special collection has approximately 200 carefully curated books released within the last two years.  We lease them and keep only the most interesting and popular items for our UNM audience.  You can find the collection right next to the book sculpture in the Zimmerman Library Learning Commons. Books in this collection are also classified according to the Dewey Decimal system, which is commonly used in public libraries.    * Note: The check-out period for this collection is two weeks with two renewals allowed.
