New Reference Sources

Recently we’ve received new editions of four major reference books. None of them are available electronically right now, but stay tuned.

They are:

Comprehensive Molecular Insect Science (formerly called Comprehensive Insect Physiology, Biochemistry, and Pharmacology)
Ref. 571.157 C738

Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology, Vol. 2 in 3 parts (Proteobacteria)
Ref. Q. 589.95 So13be 2001

Wilson and Reeder’s Mammal Species of the World, 3rd ed.
Ref. 599.0012 M311 2005

Knobil and Neil’s Physiology of Reproduction, 3rd edition
Ref. 599.016 P5695 2006

Two out of the four sets were purchased from Biology Library endowment or gift funds. Comprehensive Molecular Insect Science was purchased using one of our long-established endowment funds. And we requested funds for Vol. 2 of Bergey’s Manual from the Library Friends’ “The Library is Looking For…” column in their newsletter last fall. Two people were interested in donating money for it! With the second donor’s agreement, we used his money to purchase three books published by the American Society for Microbiology. It was encouraging to see this level of interest in our library.
