I tried to select books to support all of the computer-related programs at the University of Baltimore: Management Information Systems, Applied Information Technology, Simulation and Digital Entertainment, and Interaction Design and Information Architecture.

Many of the books were recommended by the faculty. I’d like to thank Kathleen Harmeyer, Charles Sykes, and Kathryn Summers for their excellent suggestions.

If you’d like to recommend a book for the library to purchase, and you are a UB student, staff, or faculty member, please contact Thomas Arendall-Salvetti at tarendall-salvetti (at) ubalt (dot) edu.

Coming soon: a list of the computer books purchased for Langsdale Library in the month of May!
