Biology: Books 
 

When doing your research, sometimes books are exactly what you need.
  • Books provide you with comprehensive information about your topic, providing you with an overview, background, and major theories in depth.
  • Finding books by different authors will often allow you to have many different points of view about the same subject.

    Search for books here at Millikin's library in the online catalog.
