Primatology and Primate Biology
A comprehensive collection of monographs, journals, newsletters, and bibliographies in the areas of primatology and primate biology. There is basic coverage of veterinary, laboratory animal, and biomedical research material. We also have a selection of specialized materials relevant to the various research disciplines at NEPRC including Behavioral Biology, Comparative Pathology, Immunology, Microbiology, and Neurochemistry with a strong emphasis on AIDS, infectious diseases and neuroscience.
80% of our collection circulates. Atlases, reference materials and some specific monographs do not circulate but we will photocopy any necessary pages from those items. Loan period is two weeks.
Library access is limited to Harvard-affiliated students/faculty/staff. Prior appointment to use the library is recommended.
