ZOOL101 - Introduction to Zoology - Martin

This guide is for students in David Martin's Zoology 101 class.

Zoology: Welcome

Hi, I'm Stella Beratlis, one of the MJC librarians and the library liaison for the Science, Math, and Engineering division.  I love working with students at any stage of their research. I can help you via Zoom or chat. You can also leave a message for me at 575-6245 or email me at beratliss@mjc.edu. You can try to get in touch with me during my Zoom office hours (Tues & Weds 10-11 am) or you can make an appointment. 

You can also contact any librarian for help via phone, email, chat, or text: check options at Ask A Librarian
This is a general guide for students interested in locating information related to animals and animal behavior using library resources available at the MJC Library & Learning Center. It is also intended as an aid for students enrolled in ZOO101 (Zoology) doing their project on how climate change is impacting a particular animal species.
