The LNHS Library is installed in the Angela Marmont Centre for UK Biodiversity located in the new Darwin Centre at the Natural History Museum.
Our library is available for reference by both members of the LNHS and the general public; books can be borrowed by LNHS members. There is shelving space for about half of the collection, and so we have put all the books on the open shelves, together with a selection of periodicals. Complete runs of the Society's own periodicals (The London Naturalist and London Bird Report) are available for reference.
You can consult the catalogue of books at LibraryThing.
There is also an online list of our periodicals holdings here.
We have basic arrangements for lending books to members, and any member who needs to borrow a specific work should contact the Librarian who will be able to check whether it is available.
The Angela Marmont Centre for UK Biodiversity promotes the study of natural history in the UK, and is a resource for all amateur and professional naturalists and UK natural history societies. Easy-to-access reference collections of objects are housed in the Centre. They cover a wide range of UK plants, animals, rocks and fossils and are designed to help naturalists learn more about their chosen groups and identify their own specimens.
