#Didyouknow that the KwaZulu-Natal Museum is home to one of South Africa’s largest specialist research libraries?
The library has steadily built up its extensive collections since the early years of the museum in 1851. The collections specialise in fields such as Arotropical Entomology (Diptera), Indo-Pacific Mollusca, African Lower Invertebrates, African Arachnology and Herpetology, South African Archaeology (KZN stone and iron ages), and KZN cultural history just to mention a few. The main aim of the library is to develop and preserve the library's collections, whilst providing professional library services to serve the scientific needs of the community.
The library is open to the public during museum operating hours, Monday to Friday, 9h00 - 15h30.
