We got all those new books from the Ogmah

What is the procedure to use them as source material for NWP?

are they extensive enough to be used for several NWP slots?

You said that the exobiology books could be used to familiarize ourselves with the particular race/ species/ family covered in the tome above and beyond normal natural history skill. How much study time would one require to become familiar with the content?

Plus I want to confirm something I didn't find clear in your original description, is metallurgy a separate skill or something encompassed in alchemy? If there is overlap what does one do the other does not? when working with metals is there overlap/modifications in having both skills.

The books are exhaustive enough to be used as a replacement for a tutor in a particular subject.
If the material in a particular book covers more than one area, then it could be used for both NWP slots.
Since the creatures covered in the books are all native to Oerth, exobiology is not really the correct term. Each set of books is exhaustive enough that it would take you a week of study (forgoing all else) to learn all the relevant material.
Metallurgy is indeed a separate skill from alchemy. There would be some overlap between the two, but not a great deal. I would say that if you have a skill level of 5 or greater in one skill, you could give yourself a 10% bonus towards a skill check of the other skill.
BTW, it's Oghma.

yeah but many of the monster bugs and giant bugs, magic bugs and beholders are not natural, are they?

exo may not be accurate but there should be a title for non natural species. GMOs Genetically magicked oddities

monsterology is just too awkward
