Linnaeus Link


A portrait of Carl Linnaeus

Carl Linnaeus is one of the great scientific figures of the 18th century. His works and those influenced by him are of great historical significance and continuing scientific relevance. The Linnaeus Link project aims to improve access to these key resources by the creation of high quality digital records.

Linnaeus Link is a collaboration between The Natural History Museum, the British Library, Danmarks Natur- og Laegevidenskabelige Bibliotek, the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, Kungl. Vetenskapsakademien, the Linnean Society of London, Stockholms universitetsbibliotek and Uppsala universitetsbibliotek.

Linnaeus Link will eventually provide an online union catalogue of Linnaean material.
