Biology (SUBJECT GUIDE): Quick Reference

Why Reference?

Reference works contain brief introductions, backgrounds, overviews, definitions, facts, statistics, or similar, and they may highlight some of the most important articles/books out there for further reading. Use these tools to get up to speed and jump-start your further research. Some of these are accessed online, while others are available in the Reference area on the 1st floor at Murphy Library. For assistance selecting and using these tools and more, ask a librarian!
