ARLG London and South East have organised a visit to the Linnean Society of London Library as below:



Date: Wednesday 12th February 2014, Time: 3.00 p.m. - 5.00 p.m.



Address: The Linnean Society of London Library, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London. W1J 0BF.



Details of how to get to the Linnean Society can be found at: http://www.linnean.org/Contact+Us/Find+Us



The Linnean Society of London is the world's oldest active biological society. Founded in 1788, the Society takes its name from the Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778) whose botanical, zoological and library collections have been in its keeping since 1829. As it moves into its third century the Society continues to play a central role in the documentation of the world's flora and fauna - as Linnaeus himself did - recognising the continuing importance of such work to biodiversity conservation.

Members are drawn from all walks of life, and represent the full range of professional scientists and amateurs alike with an interest in natural history. The Fellowship is international and includes world leaders in each branch of biology who use the Society's premises and publications to communicate new advances in their fields.



From its beginnings in 1788, the Society set out to make books and other sources & resources on natural history available to its users. We are very privileged to have an in-house Conservation department to help us preserve our outstanding collections.

We invite you to be part of this tradition by appreciating the beauty as well as the scientific and historical importance of our collections.  Donations to help us preserve our unique collections are always welcome!

 The visit tour will cover the history of the Society with particular emphasis on Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace, as well as the Collections and legacy of Carl Linnaeus. Tours last approximately 45 minutes, though times may vary.

The Meeting Room: A warm welcome to the Linnean Society awaits you! Admire the President's crocodile-skin chair, see the portraits of Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace, and hear more about the Linnean Society's past, present and future.

The Linnaean Collections: Journey underground to a bomb-proof strongroom to discover spectacular butterflies, beetles and books. Learn more about Carl Linnaeus, one of the founding fathers of modern biology, his works and his role in the History of Science.

The Library: The grand Reading Room of the Library has classical pillars soaring to the beautiful glass roof and two galleries running along the sides - it never fails to impress visitors and researchers alike. It is a working research library with outstanding historical and current holdings of books, manuscripts and artwork. A library display will give you a glimpse of some of our treasures.



Please note that the visit is free and a maximum of 30 people can attend this visit, so it will be a case of first come, first served.

Thanks very much



Vicky
