The city planning and landscape architecture collection serves students and faculty from many disciplines including economics, geography, civil engineering, political science, sociology, natural history, architecture, leisure studies, and environmental studies. The collection contains more than 150,000 volumes, about 20,000 of which can be found in the Funk ACES Library with the remaining volumes located in the main bookstacks, Oak Street Facility, or Rare Book and Manuscript Library.

The Biology collection focuses materials concerning cell and structural biology, microbiology, physiology, neuroscience, ecology, plant biology, entomology, and all of the basic biological sciences. Its working collection contains over 142,000 volumes and nearly 3,000 biological sciences periodicals (print and/or electronic). More than 20,000 of the volumes can be found in the Funk ACES Library with the remaining located in the Main Bookstacks and the Rare Book and Manuscript Library. The collection is primarily designed to support the curricular and research needs in the biological sciences, particularly the students and faculty of the School of Integrative Biology (SIB) and the School of Molecular & Cellular Biology (SMCB).

The Agricultural Communications Documentation Center is also in the Funk ACES Library.
