The Smithsonian/National Agricultural Library CBHL meeting Committee welcomes you to Washington D.C. !
The annual meeting hosted by a member institution is held each spring. Here members have a chance to meet one another to discuss matters of mutual interest and concern, and have a unique opportunity to get an insider’s view of the host institution.
The yearly meetings have included lectures on the care and preservation of collections, computer systems and services, as well as talks on garden literature and botanical art. Individual programs and a business meeting are regularly complemented by site visits to neighboring gardens and historic locales.
