The herbarium of the University of Northern Iowa has moved into new quarters in the recently-constructed Science Building. The facility contains enough cabinet space for over 50,000 plant specimens, a herbarium office, and ample storage space for the botanical portion of the Martin L. Grant library, given the university recently by Mrs. Janet Grant. The herbarium office houses Dr. Grant's bibliography of Iowa plants, called the "Records of Iowa Plants". This cross-indexed file contains thousands of references on 3" x 5" cards to publications on the taxonomy and distribution of Iowa plant species. These are available for use by interested investigators.
