One of the special features of the Arboretum Library is its collection of plant society journals. These are publications put out by groups such as the American Orchid Society or the International Bulb Society and they contain the most current and authoritative information about the society's area of expertise. Shown here are just a couple of the journals in the Arboretum Library's collection. These types of journals are hard to find through other means, so take advantage of the library's resources and stop by and check out these great journals.
Current issues of the journals are available to be checked out by Arboretum members for three day periods. The library also has an extensive collection of back issues and historic periodicals.
