Matthaei Botanical Gardens & Nichols Arboretum Library
Tree growing through a book



This is where you can search the catalog for the Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum Library. Most of this collection has accumulated through generous donations and has a large amount of recent material.

The collection can be searched by Title, Author, and Subject as well as by browsing call numbers. It is catalogued with the Library of Congress classification, although with less information than you may be used to seeing through the University of Michigan Library's MIRLYN system.

Materials can be checked out by Members of the Friends of Matthaei Botanical Gardens and the Nichols Arboretum. All others can use materials in the Library at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens during business hours.


The Library is now in its new space just off the lobby area. Please visit to see our great new arrangement, use the computers, check out books and enjoy this freshly available resource. Maybe you could consider how your library can help our library through your generous donations.
