Hoe, Hoe, Hoe!

May 1st, 2013

Spring is here–finally (fingers crossed)–and the green-thumbs among us are preparing their gardening spaces and deciding what, and when best, to plant.

If you are similarly inclined to dig in, come browse Steenbock’s gardening collections.The library has books suitable for the novice and practical gardener as well as academic texts examining garden history and landscape design.

The library also has a collection of seed catalogs useful for recording ideas to particular garden products and locating suitable vendors. Current issues of these seed catalogs can be browsed in-house and are located on the first floor near the rear stacks and vending area (older copies are in filing cabinets).

To get you oriented to the stacks, you can generally find gardening books shelved in the vicinity of call numbers SB300…and SB400…on the first floor of the library.

Otherwise, do speak with our librarians to assist you with using the campus library catalog to determine specific titles and call numbers within your topics of interest.
