Forestry and Environmental Studies Library Collections
The core of YSE-related materials is located in the Center for Science and Social Science Information (CSSSI; 219 Prospect St., Concourse Level of Kline Biology Tower). The CSSSI contains print book materials (Basement Level) and both PC and Mac workstations with a complete suite of Microsoft, ESRI, and other specialized software.
Library Course Reserves
Instructors can put physical materials on reserve in any library, but for most YSE materials the reserves are in the CSSSI (219 Prospect St.) or the Bass Library (underground library by Sterling Memorial Library). Listings of library reserves can be found using Orbis reserves search. Also, always check the Classes*v2 site under your class.
