Biology Subject Guide: Books

Finding Books in MaagNet and OhioLink

Books can be found through MaagNet, the Maag Library online catalog, or through the OhioLINK Catalog, which locates items available at other OhioLINK institutions. Follow the OhioLINK Borrowing Service procedure to request them.

Biology resources are located throughout the library--the Reference Room, Serials (journals), or in the circulating collection--and arranged according to the Library of Congress (LC) Classification System. If a useful item is found in one of these areas, use that same call number to find other material on the same or similar topics in other areas of the library. See Call Numbers, Location, and Building Guide for assistance.
