Abstract: The LuEsther T. Mertz Library is one of the world's largest and most important botanical and horticultural research libraries, with over one million accessioned items (books, journals, original art and illustration, seed and nursery catalogs, architectural plans of glass houses, scientific reprints, and photographs) and over 4,500 linear feet of archival materials. The Library serves as both a research and a public library and as both a scholarly resource and a general plant information service. The Library seeks to collect as comprehensively as possible in systematic and floristic botany with particular strengths in the literature about the Western Hemisphere, the focus of the Garden's research program. The Library is an active institutional member of the Research Library Group, the Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries, the Society of American Archivists, and the American Institute for Conservation. As part of its digitization efforts, the Library is a major contributor to the Biodiversity Heritage Library. [Information of the supplier, modified]
