Another month has passed without access to our physical stacks, but we are continuing to add new content to our digital collections for you to enjoy! The new acquisitions lists for June are now available for you to browse and borrow our most recent e-book and digital audiobook arrivals. You’ll find a mix of academic books and popular reading titles, offered on a variety of platforms including eBook Central (ProQuest) and OverDrive.
Go to the New Books & DVDspage and use the “ALL NEW BOOKS” link to see the new e-book acquisitions. To view new audiobooks, use the “AUDIOBOOKS” link. Please note that due to differences in the way that e-books are currently cataloged, the “Subject” lists are not active and will not display our most recent digital acquisitions.

It’s time for the 11th annual Bentley Library Top 10!
At the end of every academic year we tabulate the library’s most popular books, audiobooks, DVDs, and OverDrive downloadable ebooks and audiobooks based on the number of times they have been borrowed (excluding items placed on reserve for a class). These are our very own “Bentley Bestsellers” lists!
This year, the results for physical materials (books, DVDs, and CD audiobooks) are based on circulation data ending on March 17, the last the day the library was open before the COVID-19 shutdown. We hope that our doors will be open again soon, but in the meantime please explore the OverDrive e-book and audiobook options we offer!
This is your chance to see what Bentley students, faculty and staff have been reading, watching, and listening to. We hope you enjoy this annual tradition as much as we do, and that the lists help you find new books to explore.
