Here's How We Can Help

The University Library provides research and instructional services in the Biological, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences for all members of the University community including the Extension offices in all California counties. 
The University Library also maintains a comprehensive reference collection (in hard copy and electronic formats) that serves as a starting point to both general biological, agricultural and environmental science research topics. The print collection, located near our Consultation Desk on the Third floor of the Peter J. Shields Library,consists of over 6,600 volumes.  It is a great place to begin your work.
Whatever the size and scope of your project, our Research Support Librarians will help you get the most out of this collection and the other collections, services, and resources provided by the UC Davis University Library.
