Analysis of Sparacio Book Donations for Collection

Work in Progress!

  • This collection represents Dr. Sparacio's lifelong love of learning and reading. 
  • This document analyzes the merits of each title, indicating whether they should be added to the Berry Library Collection.
    • It is a work in progress!
