Welcome to The Linnean Society of London

Coronavirus Update

COVID-19 Notice (updated 1 September 2021)

The Linnean Society continues to monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in coordination with the rest of the Burlington House community and in line with UK Government guidelines. As part of our COVID-19 response, our staff are in the building intermittently.

Our Library is open—by appointment only—on Tuesdays-Fridays, from 10am-5pm. If you would like to make an appointment, please email library@linnean.org to discuss your visit. More information can be found on our Research Collections pages.

We regret that the Society remains closed to visitors who do not have appointments. Many staff continue to work remotely, and there may be a delay in responding to enquiries. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The Society's public lectures, conferences, tours, and other events continue to be held virtually for the time being. Please check back for further updates.

We would like to thank everyone for their patience and support in these difficult times, and we look forward to welcoming you back to Burlington House soon.
