The University of Florida Herbarium maintains a non-circulating reference library of publications pertinent to the naming and classification of vascular plants (plant taxonomy and nomenclature).

The literature in this collection contains descriptions, geographical ranges and keys for differentiating species of vascular plants, as well as information regarding latin plant names (nomenclature), plant collectors and economic botany.

The herbarium library holdings include books, journals, reprints, microfiche, maps, card files and botanical illustrations. The searchable online catalog includes only a portion of our book, reprint and journal holdings. In-house file card catalogs and staff are available to assist in locating other holdings. Our staff are also retroactively entering books and journals into the UF Libraries catalog. Herbarium entries are clearly denoted in UF’s catalog. The advanced search option with “herbarium” as location will limit searches to herbarium library entries.
