The LuEsther T. Mertz Library

A repository of centuries of knowledge, The LuEsther T. Mertz Library situated at the New York Botanical Garden is one of the world's largest and most important research libraries concerned with knowledge about the world of plants.


With over one million accessioned items (books, journals, original art and illustration, seed and nursery catalogs, architectural plans of glass houses, scientific reprints, and photographs) and over 4,500 linear feet of archival materials, the Library serves as both a research and a public library and as both a scholarly resource and a general plant information service.
