World Museum Entomology Library

World Museum’s entomology department includes an extensive and wide-ranging library for use by anyone with an interest. Access is during weekdays by prior appointment. Most books are reference only although Tanyptera Workshop Books may be borrowed for 6 month periods. Tanyptera subscribe to several British entomology journals and these may also be accessed during your visit.

If you wish to access the entomology library, please contact Tony Hunter (Assistant Curator of Entomology).

Considerable investment has recently gone into bringing the library up to date with the latest key British and European texts and this is an on-going process. We intend to upload spreadsheets on an taxon group order basis once each batch of new books has been databased by our fantastic volunteers, and then continue to update on an ad hoc basis with new publications.
