From the website: These readings aren't required; they're offered for pleasure. They've been suggested by Cal faculty, staff, and students as great readings that will introduce incoming students to vis mere a small slice of the intellectual life of the university and perhaps send them exploring the library's rich collections. Also, the readings aren't selected by us, the list's curators. Instead, we ask people on the Cal campus for their suggestions of great readings that would fit within a given theme, and then see what we get. (Also, we don't accept suggestions from publishers or authors.) The list is always potluck, always eclectic, and always full of worthwhile readings. We feel sure you'll find something on one of these lists that will spark your interest. vis mindre
