“A store within a library?” Yes, for books on programming languages such as C++, JAVA, PHP, Objective-C, or Python, or tips on using application software such as Word or PowerPoint, it is best to have the book right next to your computer. We have a limited supply of such books at the Information Commons, an you can buy the books with a project task number. We also welcome suggestions for books to be available at the IT Bookstore.
P.S. Check out the “Recycled Books” shelves next to the Circulation Desk. Someone else may no longer need their copy of “PERL Cookbook”, then you can have it at your desk for as long as you need.
