The National Museum of Natural History receives numerous requests for information on seals, sea lions, and walruses. This list of selected references is divided as follows:

Seals, Sea Lions, and Walruses, Reading List (Technical References A-N)
Seals, Sea Lions, and Walruses, Reading List (Technical References O-Z)
Seals, Sea Lions, and Walruses, Reading List (Popular)
Seals, Sea Lions, and Walruses, Reading List (Periodicals)
Seals, Sea Lions, and Walruses, Reading List (Bibliographies)

Because of their general interest and readability, some of the technical books are also listed in other sections. The popular category provides several references for young children and although technical errors do occur in some of the texts, they are not of sufficient magnitude to warrant exclusion. The publications cited are not available from the Smithsonian Institution. They can be obtained from most large public libraries or can be requested through an interlibrary loan. Many are currently in print and can be ordered from local bookstores.
