Submitted by adavey on Wed, 06/22/2022 - 11:56

The Library and Archives of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh is Scotland's national reference collection for specialist botanical and horticultural resources, and is one of this country's largest research libraries.

The Library holds over one million items – books, journals, original artworks, maps and much more. The Archives hold RBGE's historic records (e.g. correspondence, collecting records, photographs, etc) as well as those of individuals and organisations with a connection to the Garden. The collection also includes papers relating to the development of botanical science and horticulture. As one of Scotland's National Collections, all of these items are available for use by anyone that needs to access them.

The Library and Archives is open and we welcome visits from all researchers including visiting academics, artists, students and members of the public.
