The RSL holds the majority of books given on undergraduate reading lists for biochemistry. In addition to multiple copies of popular textbooks, the RSL also holds a large number of specialist works to support learning and research at the University.
Books can be found by searching SOLO. You can search by criteria such as author, title and subject. SOLO will provide you with details of the library which holds the book you want and the book's location within that library.
SOLO lists both physical books and electronic books. You can also use SOLO to check if a book is available on the shelf in the library, order material which is off-site and renew your books.
For more help in using SOLO take a look at the SOLO LibGuide.
