The Research Information Center is a repository of historical
research data and books, journal subscriptions, reprints, and
slides on biological systems. Center staff members obtain
information from a variety of sources and supply that information
to scientists, managers, and the public. Staff members also work to
enhance our collection so that useful and current information is
accessible to those who need it.
New to our collections are these recent publications.
The public can explore reference materials by visiting this research library or searching the Publications List online.
