The Society has a library of over 300 books, most of which concern the Mollusca. Most of the books are over 100 years old. Twenty-eight were published before 1700, the oldest in 1552.
The Library is presently located within the library of University College London. 206 of the books have been electronically catalogued and their details can be accessed using University College London’s library server. Enter ‘malacological’ as the search term and browse by CLASSMARK. It is hoped to arrange for a complete cataloguing of these books in the near future.
Members of the Malacological Society have access rights to these books. Any Member wishing to use the books should contact Mark Davies (mark…@sunderland.ac.uk) in the first instance.
