Dean's Lending Library
We are pleased to offer over 200 titles in our Dean's Lending Library.  The library was created in 2014 to offer students greater access to outstanding examples of published works on natural sciences, forestry, etc.  The goal is two-fold:  1) help students see the value in expanding and supporting their non-classroom based knowledge to enhance their ability to understand and express their views on natural resource topics, and 2) help students develop of a world–view based on the understanding and appreciation of others’ social backgrounds, experiences, and testimonies.  The development of such understanding might best be kindled by those writings of noteworthy authors. 

Library books are availble to students, staff, and faculty on a 10-day check out period. Late fines do apply after the 10-day period.
