American Library Association Award


The University Libraries' Plant Information Online, one of the world's largest resources for botanical and horticultural information, has been selected as one of the MARS Best Free Reference Web Sites of 2011. MARS is the "MARS: Emerging Technologies in Reference" section of the Reference and User Services Association of the American Library Association (ALA). 

Voted on by member librarians from around the United States, Plant Information Online is one of 25 web pages to be recognized by MARS this year as an outstanding site for reference information and is included in the list of MARS Best of Free Reference Web Sites of 2011

Plant Information Online offers a collection of databases of interest to plant and gardening enthusiasts and students, as well as professional botanists, horticulturists, and researchers. Some of the databases have been available in print since 1979 and online through paid subscription since 1997. The whole site is now available free to the general public.
