Lloyd's resources are in fact an eclectic blend of a host of related sciences. Despite the scientific focus, the collections have relevance to the humanities, such as visual arts and foreign languages through resources that feature botanical illustrations, original artworks, and travel literature. While the Lloyd Library is not a publicly funded institution, it is open to any and all persons interested in using the Lloyd's research collections, as well as to those interested in current Lloyd art and collections exhibits. Please contact the Lloyd in advance of your visit to determine how and if we can assist you. We invite you to explore this unique establishment.
