Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


Librarians to attend CBHL meeting

12 June 2018

Librarian Charlotte Tancin and Assistant Librarian Jeannette McDevitt will attend the annual meeting of the Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries (CBHL) in New York, 19–23 June, which is being co-hosted by New York Botanical Garden and Brooklyn Botanic Garden. This meeting will be a special one as it will be a joint meeting of CBHL, the European Botanical and Horticultural Libraries Group (EBHL), and Linnaeus Link. CBHL is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and EBHL is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Having so many botanical/horticultural librarians together for this meeting provides a rare opportunity to connect with our colleagues in person. Hunt Botanical Library, as the Institute was known in 1961–1971, was a founding member of CBHL, and Hunt Institute has been part of Linnaeus Link since its beginnings in 1999.
