The HSU Library Catalog lists all of the books videos and CDs at our library.
A keyword search is usually the best way to begin. When you find items of interest, check the catalog records for subject headings or other terms to modify your search.
Following are some specific library catalogs that include significant collections on forestry:
Catalogue of World Forestry Literature (Commonwealth Agricultural Bureau) (microfilm MF 246) Microfilm card catalog published in several cumulations that covers forestry literature from 1822-1977. More extensive in coverage than Forestry Abstracts. See Catalogue of World Forestry Literature (see link below) for additional information on the catalog.
Dictionary Catalogue of the Yale Forestry Library (Yale University) (ref SD 1 Y3) Cumulative catalog of the oldest "continuous" forestry library in the United States covering forestry literature from the early 18th century through 1962. Unique to the catalog is the inclusion of over 38,000 journal article references from forestry journals and magazines through 1940.
Our Library uses the Library of Congress Classification System to assign call numbers. In this system, the first two or three lines of a call number identify the subject of a book or other item. The main call number used for Forestry is SD.
