The Herbarium databases are used to manage most of the daily activities at CONN, which include specimen data entry, loans, nomenclature, references, morphology, collectors, data about other herbaria, localities / geo-references, classification, images and even staff projects and time cards.

Historically CONN has had and still uses several database packages. Initially the Herbarium was in an early version of Microsoft Access and was transferred to Biota and then moved eventually to BG-BASE™.

Palaeobotany resides in a FileMaker Pro database.
CONN is in the process of incorporating data from numerous sources to offer even greater access to our collections. The fungal collections, although not plants, are housed in the herbarium due to similar curatorial practice but currently are not databased.

Search the Herbarium database (over 170,000 specimen and image records).
   NOTE: All localities for
imperiled Connecticut taxa have been masked and their image links deactivated.
   If you need access to locality or image information for an imperiled species, please contact the Director.
   If no image is available for a non-imperiled taxon, then it is possible that the specimen was mounted
   with an imperiled taxon whose image link was deactivated.  Let us know if you run into any problems.
