University and Jepson Herbaria Archives, University of California, Berkeley


This database (ARCHON) provides access to finding aids for materials held by the University and Jepson Herbaria Archives. The finding aids represented in this searchable database range from the late 19th century to the present and describe a wide variety of materials including correspondence, manuscripts and typescripts of botanical publications, research files, photographs, and field notes. These finding aids represent only a portion of the Archive's materials as new collections are added to the database on a continuing basis. For more information about our holdings, please visit the Herbaria Archives website.
