COVID notice:

We want to assure you that we are monitoring the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic in coordination with the rest of the Burlington House community and in line with UK Government advice and guidelines. As part of our COVID-19 response, our staff are in the building intermittently.

The Library is now open in a limited capacity. Please see here for details.

Please also note that drop-ins are not allowed at the moment. The building is only open to Library readers and room hires, strictly subject to prior appointments.

Please note there may be delays or disruptions in replies to enquiries until normal operations return, especially if your enquiry requires Collections staff to have direct access to the Library and Archives.

Thank you for your commitment to the Linnean Society of London and its mission.
