Library

The AMNH library maintains and develops a collection of 450000 volumes of books and bound journals, as well as electronic and microform materials essential to the scientific, exhibition and educational missions of the AMNH. The library currently receives more than 4360 journals from sources worldwide. The library is one of the best in the USA for biosystematic studies and contains a range of periodicals relevant to systematics and phylogenetics in general, as well as journals relevant to taxonomic groups under study by AMNH researchers. The library also contains an extensive collection of old literature, essential for nomenclatural purposes. AMNH staff, visiting researchers, postdoctoral fellows, students, and volunteers have ready access to the library collections and to varied services offered by library staff, from reference and bibliographic assistance to interlibrary loans.

Scientific Publications

The AMNH publishes several peer-reviewed journals, two of which (American Museum Novitates and Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History, for short papers and monographs, respectively) are world-renowned forums for the publication of empirical research in systematics. Further information is available at: http://research.amnh.org/scipubs/. All AMNH scientific publications are now available online at: http://digitallibrary.amnh.org/dspace/
