Science Library Blog

As of March 15, we are permanently retiring the Science Library blog to focus on providing more expansive and in-depth information via our new subject guides. Our subject guides offer valuable information about library resources and services specific for each academic discipline. We hope you will find the guides useful and welcome feedback. General news about library services, resources and facilities will be posted on the Library News and Exhibits Blog.

Thanks to all who have followed the Science Library Blog.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jill Dixon, Science Library Coordinator.
