  4. 4. We do not contemplate a separation of the Natural History collections from the other departments of the British Museum as we well know that the cultivation of natural science cannot be efficiently carried on without reference to an extensive library Charles Darwin et al. 1847 © 2016 Sally Schramm CC-BY
  5. 5. “Hybrid library” of print and e- resources The Usual Library Books Journals Multimedia e-journals, e-books Databases Web site? Social media?

  6. 6. In any well-appointed Natural History Library there should be found every book and every edition of every book dealing in the remotest way with the subjects concerned. Moreover for accurate work it is necessary for the student to verify every reference he may find; it is not enough to copy from a previous author; he must verify each reference itself from the original. Charles Davies Sherborn (Epilogue to Index Animalium, March 1922) 2016 Sally Schramm CC-BY
