Description
This collection consists of catalogs from nursuries and seed companies in the United States.
Background
The Nursery and Seed Catalog Collection began when the library was established on the University Farm at Davis in 1908. The catalogs originally served as a current reference resource and many were lost to heavy use. When the Library and Administration building opened in 1940, the nursery catalogs were maintained in the library’s reference department as an in-house pamphlet collection.
