New Library Collection to Support an Environmental Biology Concentration

The need for better environmental education is becoming more acute both nationally and locally. With that challenge in mind, Fitchburg State College has created a new concentration within its biology major. This concentration was designed for students interested in careers in wildlife conservation and management, wetlands protection, or basic and applied ecology research. The library staff working in conjunction with the Grants office and the Biology faculty set about to provide resources.  We were very successful.  The library was given a $15,000 grant from an anonymous foundation. We have enhanced our collection with books and and other resources.  We have received 310 books and 2 movies already.    The titles cover the environment, the affect of business on the environment, climate change, various field guides, energy conservation, etc.  There is a display in the Library of sample titles we have received.  The display can be found on the first floor by the elevator.
