For a look at what has been recently added to the database, try the Recently Added CDs, DVDs and Videos in the What's New lists. That one gets updated more often. Being the newest, the titles include both donations and items just ordered. Even if it's something that hasn't arrived yet, you can place a hold on it.
The absolutely most recently ordered include sound recordings of Jennifer Weiner's Goodnight Nobody, Bob Woodward's The secret man: the story of Watergate's Deep Throat, Jan Karon's Light from Heaven, and other 2005 titles.
