SASK Herbarium Library Collection

The W. P. Fraser Herbarium maintains a growing collection of books to aid researchers in their studies. The approximately 2400 volumes in our collection include:

  • Floras covering most of North America and some of the rest of the world
  • Botanical and systematic journals
  • Ethnobotanical books and thesis
  • A wide variety of textbooks in biology, plant ecology, systematics, and geography
  • Wildflower, weed, and rare plant books

In the summer of 2002, our library was catalogued and entered into a database. Users are welcome to use and sign out most literature available in the herbarium.

Our on-line searchable SASK Herbarium library collection is UNDER CONSTRUCTION. Thank you for your patience.
