New DVD’s in Humanities Library
The Humanities Library collection of films has just received a new and much welcome infusion of DVDs. Stephen Brophy, formerly a staff member in the MIT Libraries, currently a TA in the Literature section and a tutor in Writing across the Curriculum, has generously donated over 90 DVD films. Come browse our shelves and check ‘em out. They circulate for one week.

Thank you, Stephen!
