The outstanding feature of the collection is the strength of its journal holdings, both current and retrospective. Online resources include journal article databases, electronic journals, electronic books, and reference resources. The library also has a comprehensive historical section, which places special emphasis on the fields of neuroscience, ophthalmology, molecular biology, psychiatry, psychology, radiation biology, and vertebrate zoology.

The total collection includes more than 678,235 print volumes and provides access to thousands of electronic resources including journals, databases, and other materials. Suggestions for additions are welcome and can be left at the public service desk or submitted through an online form.
