Changes to Biology Research Guides

In fall 2022, all course-specific (i.e. BIO537 or BIOL321) research guides have been migrated into the main Biology Research Guide. If the previous guide contained book recommendations related directly to the course topic, it has been moved to the tab for Finding Books or Reference Material. Under Finding Books, you will see categories for each course whereas under Reference Material, the books have been divided up by research area. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to use the "email me" button under my profile and I will respond as quickly as possible. 

Thank you for your understanding!



Use Omni to search the library's catalogue for books, articles, videos, maps, government documents, music, data sets, open access materials, and more. You can discover materials that are not available at Queen's but that you can freely request either within Omni or through interlibrary loan.
