Second Floor

Second floor

The second floor contains all of the Library of Congress classified books (the call number begins with letters instead of numbers.) The only exception to this are the reference books which are found on the first floor. The upstairs tends to have the more recent titles. There are also two chairs which provide a beautiful view of Douglas Lake out the front windows. An ideal place to study on a hot day!

The library collection at UMBS dates back to the beginning of the Biological Station (1909) and includes volumes from the 1800s and is continually updated with new titles. The collection is primarly dedicated to natural history and the biological sciences, however it does include small collections in such diverse areas as photography, literature, and anthropology. With over 10,000 volumes this makes it one of the best field station libraries in the world.

Along with the volumes we store at the library, researchers and students have access to the complete electronic catalog through University of Michigan Libraries.
