general section

Our General Section Collection contains books spanning a wide range of relevant disciplines from Art & History, Public Health and Sociology to Clinical Medicine, Criminology and Criminal justice, Vocational & Professional Studies and more. These titles have been hand-picked to provide an array of relevant, accessible and impactful content that will be invaluable to non-academic patrons undertaking their own learning and research at Public Libraries. The collection provides Public Libraries with a more affordable way to enrich communities with access to the latest research. In addition to this popular fictions of most well known writers are made available here. A major collection of Rabindranath Tagore is a prized possession of New Town Library.
