A well-maintained virus library, or as it is often called, a virus collection, is an important tool to the anti-virus researcher. It can be used to test anti-virus software, to systemize the knowledge about the thousands of currently existing viruses, as a basis of information exchange with other anti-virus researchers and so on.
