The Arboretum Library has been a center for plant and garden information since the 1950s, with a comprehensive collection of books, e-books, historical Arboretum publications which have also been digitized, current and non-current specialized magazines, historic nursery catalogs, rare books and local history. Susan’s presentation will explore the materials, services and programs of this highly specialized resource and will also talk about how she and the Arboretum Library can help you successfully ride the tsunami wave of information about your favorite subject: plants and gardens.
Susan has worked almost her entire 30 year career in small specialized libraries. This is her third botanic garden library following San Francisco and Denver. Susan came to the library world with an undergraduate degree in art history, a graduate degree in library and information studies and a father who loved books and a mother who loved beauty and plants. As a former board member and newsletter editor for SCHS, she hopes that this visit to the Arboretum Library will encourage SCHS members to utilize the wealth of materials and services available.
