BOOKS IN THE DEAN B. ELLIS LIBRARY

All books in the library are arranged by subject using the Library of Congress classification system for call numbers and subject headings. The call number for biology begins with "QH1". The basic breakdown is as follows:

QH1 – QH278.5 - Natural History (General)
QH301 – QH705.5 - Biology (General)
QK1 – QK989 - Botany
QL1 – QL991 - Zoology
QR1 – QR502 - Microbiology


The numbers that follow these beginning letters relate to the narrower scope of the item, for example: Biology (QH308.2 .B35 2009) vs. Biotechnology – Environmental Aspects (TP248.25 .P137 1995).

Occasionally a totally different call number will appear. This means the item is about more than biology and higher importance was given to the other subject when the call number was assigned.
