Thanks 2005 Science Graduating Class!

In April 2005, when many others were thinking about exams and postgraduation life, Celine Pelletier of the graduating class executive, came by the Science and Forestry Library. She wanted to know what she and her classmates could do to help the library where many of them had spent many hours over the years. After some discussion it was decided their donation could be used to purchase much needed books.

The books listed below are those acquired for the library through the generous gift of the 2005 Science Faculty Graduating Class. The selected titles are valuable additions to our collection. All have a bookplate acknowledging the class as the donor, and are now available for borrowing.
