View of the reference desk in the reading room of the Field Museum library.
While at the library, Michael Godow, library director, gave an excellent overview of the rare and special collections of the library. Other library staff were also helpful on my visit where I gave a talk to the research staff on the Biodiversity Heritage Library.
