Life Science is a broad field of study with dozens of specialties. Library materials in the life sciences range from items tightly focused on specific areas, such as radiation biology, while others are broader in scope and contain information relevant to numerous sub-disciplines.
For an excellent guide to how life science literature is organized and the best ways to research it, check out Using the Biological Literature: A Practical Guide, by Diane Schmidt (you can find it in the Stapleton Reference collection, at call number [REF] QH303.6 .D38 2002).
