Guide to Reference and Information Sources in the Zoologicla Sciences

Guide to Reference and Information Sources in the Zoological Sciences

This Web site contains the URLs and annotations for all Web-accessible resources listed in Guide to Reference and Information Sources in the Zoological Sciences, published by Libraries Unlimited in 2003.  The intent of this site is to keep the URLs for this select group of valuable sources up-to-date and available.  No new sites will be added to keep this site and the guide in sync.

Most of the resources contained in the guide and this site are designed for the use of graduate students, scientists, and the librarians that serve them, but other students and people interested in animal biology will also find something of interest.  The sites were chosen on the basis of their size (e.g., the equivalent of a book rather than an article), their reliability and authority, and the likelihood of their survival into the future.  Some sites were included if they offered the easiest or only access to information on obscure or hard-to-find taxa such as caecilians or the Mantophasmatodea.

I hope you find this site useful and I welcome comments.

Biology Librarian, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
