This guide will help you locate books, articles, and other sources that can help with your animal science research.

There are several types of sources you will want to look for in researching your animal science assignments:

  1. Print books: these resources live in the library (whether in the stacks, the reference area, or at the reserve desk) and most can be checked out for 28 days.

  2. Ebooks: many reference books, nonfiction books, and fiction books can be found in electronic format.

  3. Articles: come from periodicals (newspapers, magazines and scholarly journals). The library owns some periodicals in print and gives you access to many more via our online databases.

  4. Suggested Websites: credible websites for your animal science research.

  5. Course guides: research tips and resource suggestions geared to specific Pierce animal science classes.
