Encyclopedias provide overviews on various topics, making them wonderful resources if you need to introduce yourself to something new.  Since encyclopedias are reference books, they cannot be checked out.  Please give yourself time to consult these items while in the library.


The library has print and online biology dictionaries and here is a freely-available online biology dictionary.
