Biology: Background Info

Call Numbers

Normally books will not provide the most up-to-minute information on a subject, but it can be very useful when you  want considerable background information on your topic.

Additionally, looking through the Library's collection of biology and life sciences materials may help you decide on a topic. Library materials are arranged and located by call numbers. Call numbers refer to a subject. Most of the library materials about biology and related areas are assigned the call numbers as listed:

  • QH Biology 
  • QK Botany 
  • QL Zoology 
  • QR Microbiology
  • S   Agriculture
  • SB Horticulture
