Union Catalogue

Joining as a new Partner & List of Partners


Join as a new Partner!


If your Library or private collection contains significant Linnaean material, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Please contact the Project Coordinator Isabelle Charmantier for an informal enquiry.

  • Your collection does not necessarily have to be fully catalogued online - it is possible to upload Excel spreadsheets with data into Linnaeus Link.
  • The only requirement is that your catalogue records contain Soulsby numbers in the required fields. We are happy to advise you throughout this process.
  • Being a Partner allows you to showcase your holdings and your institution, and to become part of a world-wide network. The new LLUC allows individual records to be branded, so that every one of your records promotes your institution and collection.
  • We have a Partners' Meeting once every year to discuss collections, research, cataloguing & strategic issues.
  • Becoming a Partner will give you free access to most of our Partners' MARC catalogue records to download for cataloguing or upgrading your own collections.
