Welcome to the WCS Library Resource Guides, where you'll find information on print and online resources to support the study, care, and conservation of wildlife and wild places. Each Resource Guide is broken down into 3 sections, Books, Databases, and Organizations. There may be further breakdowns within each section. No Guide can be considered a comprehensive list of available resources on the subject. We strongly suggest conferring with your local school or public librarian for further suggestions.

Resource guides are currently available for the following subjects:

Climate Change

Conservation Biology

Herpetology (Reptiles & Amphibians)

Mammalogy (Mammals)

Ornithology (Birds)

Zoo Animal Health & Conservation
