Biomedical Engineering

Browsing in the Stacks

The bioengineering literature will be found in different subject areas given its interdisciplinary nature: science (Q), medicine (R) and technology (T). By following the alpha-numeric system of the Library of Congress Classification scheme (see outline), books on similar subjects are kept together on the shelves. The following list can help guide you to different topics. Consult the library floor maps to find the location of the different sections (Q is on the second floor, R and T are on the lower level).
