Daniel Solander Library

The library at the Royal Botanic Gardens was established in 1852.[6] It is named after Daniel Solander (1733 - 1782) who was a student of Linnaeus[7] and held positions at the British Museum, including working in the library.[8][9] He was employed in 1768 by Joseph Banks to accompany him on James Cook's first voyage to the Pacific. On their return to England in 1771 he became Banks' botanist and librarian.

The library is the oldest botanical research library in Australia. The library has a collection of horticultural, botanic and taxonomic literature and is located within the National Herbarium of New South Wales which has samples collected by Banks and Solander on the voyage with James Cook amongst more than 1.2 million plant specimens.
