Biology Subject Guide: Background Information

Paper Books & Journals in the Library

Library books & paper journals are organized by subject and assigned a call number, found on the spine of the book. It usually looks like AA .B01 C02 2015.  The first two letters are the subject and the last number will always be the year published. 

Biology books and journals are found under QH-QR on the basement floor (beige carpet). Some other call numbers of interest start with: QD (Chemistry), R (Medicine), RC (Psychiatry), RS (Pharmacology), & S (Agriculture, Aquaculture, & Forestry).


The following books can be found on the main floor (grey carpet) of the library and cannot be removed from the library.  Please feel free to photocopy, scan, or photograph any pages you need to refer to later.
