With Rogers McVaugh's Botanical Results of the Sessé & Mociño Expedition (1787–1803) VII. A Guide to Relevant Scientific Names of Plants (2000) and The Torner Collection of Sessé & Mociño Biological Illustrations CD-ROM (1998) being out of print, in 2018 the Institute digitized the McVaugh book and turned the CD-ROM into a searchable database so that scholars can once again pair McVaugh's exhaustive accounting of the approximately 7,500 plant names relating to the Expedition with the full-color digital reproductions of watercolor botanical drawings from the Expedition for the most comprehensive information yet assembled about the botanical results of the Spanish Royal Botanical Expedition to New Spain.
