Publications Exchange

In 1895 the Museum's first publication, An Historical and Descriptive Account of the Field Columbian Museum, was sent to museums and scientific organizations worldwide, accompanied by solicitation for mutual exchange of publications. Several hundred exchange agreements were quickly established, and today the Library receives about 900 journal titles through the exchange program. Exchange partners may receive one or both of the Museum's two series: Fieldiana Anthropology or Fieldiana Life and Earth Sciences (covering the areas of botany, geology and zoology).

Here is more information about Fieldiana.
