We have put together a page full of ways to fill your time with nature if you're stuck at home. Visit

To everyone in the extended Fellowship of the Linnean Society of London, we want to assure you 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 working remotely.

The library will be re-opening from August 5 in a limited manner. Please see here for details.

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.
