Help me find this 1970's (?) sci-fi trilogy

Some time, probably in the 1970's, my mother read a trilogy of science-fiction novels. They were written by a woman author, and were about a team of space explorers. One thing that stood out about them was that all of the crew received training that divided them into "specialists" or "generalists" in whatever their chosen field was. And that's all we know. She doesn't recall ever seeing anything else by the same author, and remembers that the titles were fairly standard spacey stuff.

Find That Book: Spaceship with a forest interior?

Looking for a book I read as a kid, so I only have a few clues which is probably why I haven't been able to turn this one up. Science fiction, read probably in the mid-to-late eighties out of a school library. It might have been an older book - it had the flavor of older science fiction but I could be wrong on that part.

Looking for new SF books hiding in the general fiction section

I like science fiction books that are placed in the general fiction section - but for me they are hard to find on Amazon or in libraries. Examples of these kinds of books are The Sparrow, The Yiddish Policemen's Union, Oryx and Crake, Cloud Atlas and The Dog Stars ... but I need more new stuff - any suggestions?

Creation Myth

Pequeninos, Thranx, Fithp, Psychlos, Aalaag, Hani, Mahendo'sat, Kif, etc. Do you recall if any of these science fiction aliens (or any other sf aliens) have their own creation myth? At first glance it seemed a easy research assignment. I have no trouble in coming up with creation myths for real cultures, but I'm coming up with 0 in imaginary cultures.
