Australian National Herbarium (Program HC)
CSIRO Black Mountain, Herbarium Library
The Library at the ANH CSIRO site operates as a section of the CSIRO Black Mountain Library (BML):
Centre staff can obtain assistance from BML for inter-library loans/photocopying, on-line searches, and CD-ROM searches on the CDs held in BML. Inter-library loans may also be requested on-line by staff. The Herbarium Library also contains a collection of important botanical works and early herbaria in microfiche form.
Circulating journals, new journals to be housed at the Herbarium and new books are kept on display for two (2) weeks in the bay window area of the library. These are not to be taken from the library but may be borrowed once incorporated. The changeover day for the Herbarium and Black Mountain Library is Tuesday.
Black Mountain library also has new books and journals on display which may be relevant to staff.
CPBR and CSIRO staff may borrow directly from the Library. Other persons must make application through their institution's librarian who will make their request through Black Mountain Library.
