Founded in 1999, the Linnaeus Link Project is an international collaboration between libraries with significant holdings of Linnaean material.
As an online union catalogue of Linnaean material held in institutions worldwide, Linnaeus Link acts as the official bibliography of the works and legacy of Carl Linnaeus (1707–1778), the founding father of modern biology. It continues the bibliographic work of Basil H Soulsby.
Since the inaugural meeting in 1999, many important institutions have committed to moving the project forward. Linnaeus Link welcomes new partner institutions with significant holdings of Linnaean material. If you have any questions, or if you are interested in joining, please contact us.
