The McNaughton Collection

The McNaughton Collection is a changing collection of the current best-sellers and graphic novels that are not searchable in Triton's online catalog. The collection is located by the Juvenile section with a sign that says "Recreational Reading." These books may be checked out for four weeks and are on a first come, first serve basis. They are arranged alphabetically by title on the shelves, but you can search them online either by title or author. The Graphic Novel collection can be found on the magazine tower near the main Graphic Novels Collection behind the Reference Desk.
