As the new academic year begins, we highlight the newest and most recently updated Spotlight Lists in GOBI.

A crowd favorite, Spotlight Lists are specially curated selection lists in GOBI that feature recommended e-books and print books from highly experienced librarians. Spotlight Lists are updated monthly, and librarians can browse these curated lists to find high-quality print books and e-books on a wide range of timely and relevant topics.

Providing librarians with more freedom of choice, while making the collection development process less time consuming, GOBI Spotlight Lists are curated based on quality of titles, timeliness of topics and the needs of real librarians. Librarians can subscribe to browse the most current titles and acquire whole lists or select individual titles based on their specific needs.

See below for the newest and most recently updated Spotlight Lists in GOBI to help you save time while finding the right books for your library.
