Search the Reference Collection

The reference collection is a great place to begin your research. These short relevant articles will give the basic understanding you need to formulate a good research question.

Shelf Browsing

Biology branches out over many different subject areas.  If you want to browse either the reference (main floor) or regular (upstairs) collections to find material, I would suggest that you look in the following sections:

QH 1-278.5 - Natural History

QH 301-705.5 - Biology (General)

QK 1-989 - Botany

QL 1-991 - Zoology

QM 1-511 - Human Anatomy

QP 1-345 - Physiology

QR 1-502 - Microbiology
