Our primary mission is to support the curricular and research needs of the School of Integrative Biology (IB) and School of Molecular & Cellular Biology (MCB). Our holdings cover all basic biological sciences. The Biology Library's collection includes over 137,000 volumes, with subscriptions to both print and electronic journals. The print collection is housed in several libraries on campus; please see Which Libraries Have Biology Books and Journals? for details.
Course materials can be placed on reserve for students to access at any campus library. You may contact the Biology Librarian to facilitate your choice.
Online access to a large collection of bibliographic databases is available to University patrons. PubMed, Web of Science, and Scopus are linked directly from the Biology Virtual Library homepage. Other available online indexes include CAB Abstracts, and the Zoological Record; and databases such as GenBank, ENZYME, and EMBL & Entrez via PubMed.
