Jean and Bill Lane Botanical Library

The Jean and Bill Lane Library is temporarily CLOSED. 

The Jean and Bill Lane Library was built as part of the Horticulture II building in 1994. The Lanes, of Sunset Magazine and Lane Publishing, generously donated funds for construction of the library. 

The collection focuses on the plants of South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and California. We have books that specialize on the protea familyand biogeography with the overall emphasis of the collection on horticulture and floristics

For books on cell and molecular biology and other topics, students are directed to the Science Library or Main McHenry Library on the UCSC campus.
