Book would be highly usefull for students studying in any of the bilogical sciences. Having a root word dictionary can vastly imporve student performance by reducing the difficulty of the task in remembering a the new languge biology often presents to students. Reccomended as refrence book.

This book would serve as a great companion book to the other suggested book Dictionary Of Word Roots. I highly reccomend a companion book for students studying in the biology department becasue it would help students spell and piece together root word fragments in the proper order woith the porper spelling. I also reccomend this as a reference book and not a on the shelf book because it is a companion book and multiple students studying for exams may need to refer back to certain lessons. Therefore, it would serve best as a refrence book as it is rather like a text book.

This is an adult fiction series that I recommend to my students that liked Twilight but want something more mature than young adult fiction. It has steampunk and werewolf themes, so it fits the paranormal genre which continues to be popular with students. It also has prominent gay characters which can be found to be affirming for my GLBT-identified students. Finally, it has a strong female lead character throughout the series that constantly goes against society's expectations of her, so it has feminist themes worth exploring.

This is book 3 of the five book series. See my note on book 1, Soulless, for why I recommend it to students to get them interested in reading "fun" books. I find that getting students hooked on series novels increased their reading fluency and vocabulary.

I recommend this book to students who have little experience with poetry. I find it makes poetry accessible as many college students listen to hip hop.

Graphic novel which makes it accessible to developmental readers, but equally enjoyable for more advanced readers. It's about the coming of age story of a teenager in Tehran during the Islamic revolution but despite handling very serious topics, it keeps a humorous bent and engaging flow for the reader. It is quite educational about culture and politics while also being entertaining. Here is the description:
Persepolis is the story of Satrapi's unforgettable childhood and coming of age within a large and loving family in Tehran during the Islamic Revolution; of the contradictions between private life and public life in a country plagued by political upheaval; of her high school years in Vienna facing the trials of adolescence far from her family; of her homecoming--both sweet and terrible; and, finally, of her self-imposed exile from her beloved homeland. It is the chronicle of a girlhood and adolescence at once outrageous and familiar, a young life entwined with the history of her country yet filled with the universal trials and joys of growing up.

The Unreality of UFORA (Notes on Contemporary Art)
Authored by Rob Mintz, Dalibor Polivka
Contributors: Nicolas Bourriaud, Alfredo Cramerotti
Designed by Dalibor Polivka
Edited by Olga Ruppeldtova, Kelly Acquistapace Available at

From the back of the cover:
Encouraged by the successes of their co-curated exhibitions Inexpressible (2009), After Hours/ Individual Stories (2010), and You First (2011), artists Dalibor Polívka and Rob Mintz (co-founders of UFORA, the Universal Festival of Relational Art) decided to create an art book depicting how "relational aesthetics" had rocked their world. In this handsomely designed volume, their essays compliment seminal texts by the influential French curator Nicolas Bourriaud (who coined the term "relational aesthetics") and Mostyn gallery director Alfredo Cramerotti. Nicolas Bourriaud's essay "Instable Connections" sets the record straight on the history of the term. Alfredo Cramerotti's piece, "Three Ways of Curating," presents new approaches to creative survival in an ever-shifting, curatorial culture. Delving into "exhibition as medium" and "institutional critique," The Unreality of UFORA presents the work of a cadre of contemporary artists participating in an experimental exhibition. Full of incisive quotations from a variety of experts about the impact of "relational aesthetics," its controversial acceptance, and its place in art history, The Unreality of UFORA should be on the radar of artists, collectors, curators, and art students seeking a high-octane jolt of insight into the relational turn.

This is a brand new film about the women's liberation movement, from the 60s to modern times. This is applicable to any courses on gender equality including women's studies, sociology, history, etc. It is limited in theaters but DVD copies are available May 1st. The website says it has special prices for nonprofit libraries (not sure if that applies to IVC). Here is the site: Thanks! I'd love to show it in my class.
