The Elizabeth F. Gamble Horticultural Library is a non-circulating reference library for use on-site by the public, volunteers, and horticultural staff. We are thrilled to share it with you!
To use: The collection is available in the Gamble Garden Main House during open hours 9am-2pm. Click below to access library titles through our online catalog. You may search the catalog via your laptop or iPhone at the library; or, search it from home before you visit.
Type in search words for author, title or subject and click the appropriate button. If you are not sure of the exact title or subject, type in a word or two and search both files. Press a highlighted (blue) title to see the Item’s detail page which might give more searching ideas.
Note: the catalog is not forgiving of misspellings and the search help button does not apply to Gamble.
Books are arranged in the library by an alphabetical call number system, a common classification used in colleges and specialized libraries, which is sorted by letter first and then by number. For example, QL464 comes before SB419 which is followed by SB450.
We welcome your comments and feedback on our new catalog!
