Don’t forget that National Collection Holders and Plant Guardians have access to Jstor to research their plants. To receive instructions on how to activate your access please contact us.JSTOR is a not-for-profit organization, founded to help academic libraries and publishers, a shared digital library (it is short for Journal Storage) started in 1995. Your access is paid for either by grants from charitable organisations applied for from National Office, or donations from local groups.

There is also access to JStor Global Plants which is a community-contributed database where worldwide herbaria can share their plant type specimens, experts can determine and update naming structures, students can discover and learn about plants in context, and a record of plant life can be preserved for future generations.There are many specimens from Kew and RHS Wisley available to study. There are artifacts too, want to see what a net made from baobab fibre looks like? Or Georg Forster’s sketch of a Justicia?
