Inspiring innovation from tradition

As this is a research library, the collections care is one of our primary duties. This creates certain access restrictions for researchers. Below are items not permitted within the Historia Plantarum Collection:

  • No backpacks, briefcases, cases, notepads, ring binders, spiral notebooks, or the like, are allowed to be near the library material.
  • No ink pens are allowed near library materials.
  • No food or drink is allowed near library materials.
  • Books from outside are not permitted, unless approved by staff. These are generally restricted to special needs, e.g. when comparing texts, or using a language dictionary.

NOTE: The Institute reserves the right to restrict use of materials of exceptional value or fragility conserved in the Historia Plantarum Collection. Advanced approval is required to view these collections.
