The BRIT Library

    The BRIT Library supports botanical research and education in Texas and around the world. Our collection has been carefully curated and is a valuable research tool for those studying systematic botany, horticulture, natural history and ethnobotany. The BRIT Library houses one of the largest and finest collections of botanical works in the southwestern United States. 

    Our collection is non-circulating but we are open to the public for use as a reference library Tuesday - Friday, 10am to 4pm. To ensure that someone is available to assist you, please make an appointment before stopping by.
