The Research Library as it looked around 1930. Some of the chairs and tables are still in use today.
A collection of books were donated to NHM from the Sierra Club Library. This collection will broaden our understanding and awareness of the natural world as well as environmental issues. It features rich and varied material on flora, fauna and natural environments regionally and worldwide, which can be used as a valuable resource for research work and educational outreach.
The Research Library is in the process of cataloging a collection of rare books published from the 1700s to 1800s. they contain many vivid illustrations and detailed descriptions of birds, plants, and mammals from around the world. The collection includes works by Audubon, Martyn, Perry and numerous other names prominent in the study of natural history.
