On Saturday, 8 November last, the library collection of the Netherlands Entomological Society (NEV) has officially been handed over to Naturalis Biodiversity Center, the national museum and heritage centre for the natural sciences in Leiden.

Since 1968 the NEV collection had been housed on loan at UvA. The most important consideration in handing the collection over to Naturalis was that in this way all natural history collections, objects and library collections are now concentrated at a single location in the Netherlands.

The catalogue of the NEV books and journals collection can be found at the NEV website. The actual collection itself can be consulted in the library of Naturalis.
