Introducing the Prairie Research Institute Library

On June 13, 2011, the libraries of the Illinois Natural History Survey, Illinois State Geological Survey, Illinois State Water Survey, and Illinois Sustainable Technology Center merged to form the Prairie Research Institute Library. The Institute Library, located in the former Illinois Natural History Survey Library space (1816 South Oak Street, Champaign), represents both a merger of print collections and collaboration among the State Scientific Surveys and the University Library to provide library service to Institute Staff, the University of Illinois community, and the citizens of Illinois. Like the Natural History Survey Library before it, the Institute Library is open to the public, and all are welcome.

News from the Institute Library will be posted henceforth on the Prairie Research Institute's News From the Library Blog.
