The Biological Systems Engineering collection supports the teaching, research and service activities of the department and the entire university community. Its primary audience is the faculty, staff, and students of the Biological Systems Engineering Department, uniquely situated in both the College of Engineering and the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources (IANR) through the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR). The primary focus of the collection is support for the undergraduate and graduate curricula for Biological Systems Engineering. Specific and transient research needs of Biological Systems Engineering faculty and graduate students are supplemented through Interlibrary Loan. The focus of the Biological Systems Engineering collection is diverse in nature as it encompasses disciplines that are well established within colleges and departments in the university structure. Materials are not purchased for the general public and community users, though they may benefit from the collection for their information needs.
