Handbook

Holliday, C.W., 1989-present. A Handbook for Research Students, Department of Biology, Lafayette College. Until 1995, this handbook was updated yearly and distributed in printed form to Departmental research students and their faculty mentors. In 1996 it was enlarged, rearranged and placed on our departmental www page.
