Why Should You Attend?
The Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries (CBHL) Annual Meeting returns after 29 years to Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona, and the stunning Sonoran Desert. This year’s theme, Adapt and Flourish in a Changing Climate, provides a dynamic forum for information professionals from across the country and world to share best practices and tools for collections care. They will also discover fresh ways to engage users and explore strategies for flourishing in an ever-changing digital landscape.

Two dynamic speakers, David Yetman and Mary Ellen Bates, will share their perspectives on the meeting’s theme of adapting and flourishing.
