Welcome! to all New and Returning Students.
We are still in the midst of shifting the collection and removing boxes of journals that are leaving the library - but the computers are all accessible and it is relatively easy to find whatever you need. A shipment of new books has arrived just in time to welcome all new and returning students. Come in and browse when your orientation schedule brings you through the science center!
Among the new books are Stephen Hawking's A Briefer History of Time and a visually remarkable book by David Attenborough, Life in the Undergrowth. It is full of incredible photographs of invertebrates of every description, in the act of preying on other creatures, devouring vegetation, mating, caring for larva, building nests and traps - quite a stunning collection. It complements nicely Naskrecki's The Smaller Majority, also in the science library.
