Serving Northern British Columbia Information literacy is a set of abilities requiring individuals to "recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information ." Association of College and Research Libraries Biology is a division of the Natural Sciences that deals with the study of life and living things, including their origin, diversity, structure, activities and distribution. Northern Lights College offers a variety of biology courses, such as Introductory Biology I & II, Human Anatomy, Human Physiology and Introduction to Ecology. Ask a Librarian for assistance in finding relevant books and journal articles and/or if you need help researching a course related topic. The librarian will also provide assistance in using the Library’s website, online catalogue, article databases, and the Internet. Contact the librarian directly or use the “Ask a librarian” section on the Library web pages.
