27(1) Bulletin published

6 May 2015

The spring issue of the Bulletin is for the birds. Those interested in old letters and rare books will also find something to crow about. Our curator of art discusses Elements, the current exhibition that features imagery of bird nests. Our archivist showcases a letter by botanist John Lindley. Our assistant librarian rediscovers a rare book and uncovers some new information. Our librarian reports on the recent Linnaeus Link meeting. We invite everyone to attend Open House 2015 and provide the schedule of events.
