A Guide to Biological Information and Resources

The following guide will describe the structure of Biological information and its organization in Leeward Community College Library. Included in this guide are suggested printed and electronic resources.

The "Basic Skills" section will provide guidelines for writing for the sciences, training in searching for library resources, use of the Internet, and evaluation of Internet sites. It is suggested that the user spend some time in these areas in order to take maximum advantage of the resources available. It is suggested that you look at the sections in sequence. You may review a section at anytime by using the navigation guide to the left of the page. You should allow 30-40 minutes to read this guide if you don't need to use the "Basic skills" section. There are a few Animated files in this guide. You do not have to wait for these to load in order to proceed.

For further assistance with the topics of this guide, specific reference questions, or an appointment for help with an extensive paper or project, please contact David Coleman. Phone: 455-0673 E-mail: and include your class number, i.e. Bio 171.
