Abstract

Conservation science, local community, and a library in Galapagos

The paper presents the work of the Charles Darwin Foundation's library and archive at the Galapagos Islands (Ecuador), the oldest and only active library in the archipelago. The library holds an important collection of scientific and conservation-related documents. In order to connect people with that particular set of knowledge, the CDF's library and archive are developing a number of activities that are briefly described in these pages.
