With its holdings of 225000 titles, the library of the botanical garden in Geneva has available almost the entirety of the worldwide published works and articles in the area of botany and plant taxonomy. Especially remarkable is the collection of pre-Linnean works (16th and 17th centuries), the loose leaf collection, and the botanical illustrations from the 18th century. ...

The Type Specimen Register of the United States National Herbarium was begun in 1966 and contains images and data for more than 90,000 type specimens of algae, lichens, bryophytes, ferns, gymnosperms and angiosperms. Yet to be imaged are the lichens, bryophytes and algae, as well as any type that has been on loan since before the start of the project. Types that have been imaged are indicated with a bold letter 'I' at the end of the record. The 'Guidelines and Resources' section describes some of our working methods and some issues with special collections. Types in the U.S. National Herbarium are filed under the basionym and all queries search only the basionym fields. Over time we have added the current name to some records as specimens are annotated, and this name is also displayed. Two search options are available. The 'quick search' leads directly to a single name. The 'full search' allows the user to select search fields, sort order, and output format. ... [Information of the supplier]
The Virtual Herbarium is a huge advancement in herbarium use and design coupling the collection of physical specimens directly with the WWW and incorporating complete specimen data integrated with multiple resources for information generation and retrieval. Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden has the first truly virtual herbarium. We already have nearly 60,000 specimens online, including nearly 3,700 palms. NewTaxonomy is now derived from work of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group. The Dan Austin Convolvulaceae Collection is now available for simple searches. Multiple Herbaria can be searched at once. Rather than just a simple text database of specimens, or photos of a few particular specimens, an integral part of our design philosophy is to make a high resolution photograph of every specimen in the herbarium available to the world. Our virtual herbarium includes not only specimens from our physical herbarium, but also specimens from other herbaria. The entire Herbarium of the National Trust for the Cayman Islands (CAYM) is available here. In addition to the specimens themselves (each has a high resolution photo of the specimen, a 300dpi scan of the label, and the associated searchable text database containing all of the label information in raw form as well as several interpreted fields) we also have several other resources such as extensive species lists, interactive keys, and thousands of photos of living plants in various databases and indices. ...
