The Waite Library


The Waite Library supports the research and teaching of the Faculty of Sciences, formed in 2002 by the amalgamation of the Faculty of Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences and the Faculty of Science.

Reflecting the research strengths of the Waite Campus Link to external website, the major themes of the collection include agriculture, plant biotechnology and breeding, plant pathology, horticulture, soil sciences, viticulture and wine science.

The Library also supports the research of Primary Industries and Regions South Australia and the South Australian Research and Development Institute.
