Why I am a CBHL member
I can't imagine not renewing our CBHL membership. My involvement in CBHL is one of the highlights of my job and the benefits far outweigh the cost.
Brandy Kuhl, Library Director, Helen Crocker Russell Library of Horticulture, San Francisco Botanical Garden
CBHL is my lifeline, my go-to group when I need assistance locating information about plants and botanists, especially the early works and on taxonomy.
Suzi Teghtmeyer, CBHL president and librarian, Michigan State University Libraries
I have been a member of CBHL since 2001 when I joined the staff of the Elisabeth C. Miller Library at the University of Washington Botanic Gardens in Seattle. That same year, I attended my first annual meeting at the Denver Botanical Garden hosted by the Helen Fowler Library. I was so amazed to learn that there was an organization comprised of plant librarians!After the Miller Library hosted the annual meeting in 2010, I was asked to join the Board. I wanted to serve CBHL because I had gained so much from meeting fellow horticultural librarians and visiting other garden libraries.
Tracy L. Mehlin, information technology librarian, University of Washington Botanic Gardens
CBHL has proven to be for me the best professional organization to participate during my 34-year career as head of the Library of the Montréal Botanical Garden. As my involvement, I attended 26 annual meetings, hosting two of them, I served on the board and was part of many committees. CBHL provided me with shared expertise and a great network of colleagues all across North America.
