Some parts of the following collections were catalogued remotely by Linnean Society archivists during the various 2020 lockdowns:

- Correspondence of E.M. Holmes (MS/235)

- Correspondence of N.J. Winch (MS/321)

- Manuscripts of Francis Buchanan-Hamilton (MS/399, MS/401, MS/401F, MS/401M, MS/402, MS/402D, MS/403, MS/405 and MS/488)

Not having access to the original material, we have relied on finding aids, which has potentially led to errors in some records. We will endeavour to rectify these as soon as we are back on site.
