The 42nd annual meeting of the Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries (CBHL) will be held in Seattle, May 18-22, 2010. The meeting, "Are You Being Served? The Art and Science of Providing Service in a Plant Library,” will be hosted by the Elisabeth C. Miller Library at the University of Washington Botanic Gardens.

A pre-conference workshop focusing on disaster preparedness will launch this annual meeting. During the week, several local Seattle speakers with interesting plant science library connections will share their perspectives. In addition, members’ papers and panels will explore a variety of library topics and projects.

Study tours throughout the meeting will explore the resources of the Seattle area with site visits to the Central Branch of The Seattle Public Library (designed by Rem Koolhaas), University of Washington Libraries, Washington Park Arboretum, Bloedel Reserve, Center for Urban Horticulture and Union Bay Natural Area.
