Origins and Biology Collection
The Origins and Biology collection houses books on creationism and evolution. The primary focus of the collection is on materials that provide 19th-century creationist counter-arguments to the Darwinian evolutionary theory.
The collection also includes materials that focus on the development of Darwinian thought up to the Neo-Darwinian synthesis. Additions to this collection come from librarian acquisitions, deaccessioned items from the library’s general collection, or patron donations.
