Welcome to the Human Biology Subject Guide

The aim of this guide is to provide a starting point for library research and an outline of the key resources available at ECU Library relevant to Human Biology.

Significant new resources, both print & online, will be added on a regular basis and we welcome any feedback.

If there isn't a link for book titles, just copy and paste the title into the ECU Worldsearch box and follow the prompts to link to the eBook or check for print copies on the shelf. Similarly, with journal titles or video titles, just copy and paste the title into the ECU WorldSearch box. We're in the process of adding links to resources in the guide.

For any queries or if you need assistance, please Contact the Library. Email:
