This guide is intended to help you find both print and online environmental sciences resources. This guide is only a starting point for your research, it is not meant to be a comprehensive list of resources. If you need further assistance, please visit the Research & Information Desk in the library.
All books in the library are arranged by subject using the Library of Congress classification system for call numbers and subject headings. Because environmental sciences cover such a large area of study, the relevant call numbers are spread out. The basic breakdown is as follows:
|GE1 - GE350||-||Environmental Sciences|
|GF1 - GF900||-||Human Ecology|
|Q1 - Q390||-||Sciences (General)|
|QD1 - QD999||-||Chemistry|
|QE1 - QE996.5||-||Geology|
|QH301 - QH705.5||-||Biology|
|QK1 - QK989||-||Botany|
|QL1 - QL991||-||Zoology|
|QR1 - QR502||-||Microbiology|
|S1 - S972||-||Agriculture (General)|
|SB1 - SB1110||-||Plant Culture|
|SF1 - SF1100||-||Animal Culture|
|SH1 - SH691||-||Aquaculture|
|TD1 - TD1066||-||Environmental Technology|
The numbers that follow these beginning letters relate to the narrower scope of the item, for example: the call number S589.7 represents books about agricultural ecology while the call number S589.75 is about agriculture and the environment. An example of a specific call number for a book entitled Natural Disasters and Extreme Events in Agriculture is S589.75 .N36 2005.
Occasionally a totally different call number will appear. This means the item is about more than environmental science and higher importance was given to the other subject when the call number was assigned.
