About the Ann Barker Memorial Library

As a memorial to former President Ann Barker, and through her generous bequest to the organization, past issues of Iowa Bird Life have been digitized and presented here for your enjoyment and research.

Ann was one of our favorite people and served the organization well in many capacities. For those who never had the pleasure of being infected with her enthusiastic personality, or for those who just want to take a moment and remember it, we encourage you to read this "Meet An Iowa Birder" article about her written shortly before illness took her from our midst.

There are two ways to use the library. To find a particular issue, all are presented below. Click on the range of years, the year, and then the issue and it will open in a new window for reading or printing. To search for a particular subject or author, go to the search page. If an IOU member is logged in the most recent two years are available. As a year is completed, a new volume becomes available in the public domain.
