What a Zoo!
The University Libraries’ Entomology, Fisheries and Wildlife (EFW) Library is a wild zoology collection that began with the collections of Otto Lugger, the first Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station entomologist, and Father Francis Jager, a noted faculty member whose bee collection came to the library in 1930. EFW’s subject strengths are found in areas such as aquaculture, bee and beekeeping literature, entomology, fisheries management, herpetology, ichthyology, ornithology, and wildlife management. Serving as the primary collection for the Department of Entomology and the Department of Fisheries, Wildlife and Conservation Biology, the library’s many collection strengths are complemented by an extensive rare books collection. Notable volumes include the earliest English language work on entomology published in London in 1634. You can visit the EFW Library in person at Hodson Hall on the St. Paul Campus or online .
