What is the New Poetry Reading Collection?

The collection is a rotating, reading collection, for use inside the English department, on the first floor of Marquette Hall; so books in the collection shouldn't be removed from the department. At the end of the semester, the collection returns to the general collection in Memorial Library, where the books will be available (again) for regular library checkout. Then, at the beginning of the new semester, a new collection of books take their place at the department.
