Topic 3: The Ron Sauey Memorial Library for Bird Conservation


The late Dr. Ronald Sauey was a co-founder of the International Crane Foundation. In his memory, his family supported construction of the Ron Sauey Memorial Library for Bird Conservation at ICF headquarters in Baraboo, Wisconsin, U.S.A. The library includes a collection of 7,000 research reports, popular articles, papers, and dissertations about cranes worldwide; 2,000 monograph titles in the areas of general conservation, cranes, ecology, zoology, and ornithology; 12 major journals in ornithology and conservation biology; and over 200 newsletters and magazines. A professional librarian maintains the collection and provides bibliographies and copies of papers upon request. The collection, including papers, journal articles, and book chapters, has been indexed and entered into an in-house computer catalog, facilitating access to information and the printing of bibliographies. Translations of the most important non-English papers (mainly in Chinese, German, Japanese, and Russian) are available. A list of new documents is provided annually and sent to crane researchers worldwide. Further information about the library and its resources is available through ICF.
