Collections and Loans

The aim of the MSA Recreational Library is to build collections based on students’ interests. We take a lot of book recommendations and monitor all feedback and popular loans.

  • Books: We maintain a diverse collection including fiction, sci-fi, cook books, graphic novels, travel guides, poetry, popular non-fic, romance, humour, and biography. Our recently-expanded LOTE collection includes Chinese, Indonesian, Japanese, French, and Spanish. Not sure what to read next? Check out our new arrivals!
  • The library holds subscriptions to 50+ magazines, comics, and manga titles; and houses a graphic novel collection with both current and classic trade paperbacks.
  • Our multimedia collection includes new-release DVDs, TV Series and CDs, as well as 2000+ LPs to enjoy on our vintage turntables – Classical, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Musicals, Comedy, and more.
  • The TV and games lounge is home to a widescreen TV, Nintendo Wii U gaming, and puzzle & board games collection.
  • You can access e-books and audiobooks over at our digital media catalogue.
  • We also have a collection of ‘equipment’ – basically ‘useful stuff’: stationery, paper-cutters, phone-chargers, spare headphones, umbrellas.
