Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation

Citing the Web site

Hunt Institute's collections are accessible not only to botanists and historians but also to the public. That mission of accessibility was established by our founder, Rachel Hunt. We take that mission seriously and try to fulfill it at every opportunity. Our Web site is one of the best ways for us to make our collections accessible to everyone. We invite you to explore the site and then to cite it as a source in your publication, whether that is a book, an article in an academic journal, a high school history paper or a blog post. Below are citation examples. If in doubt, simply copy the URL in the address bar at the top of the page you want to cite and paste it into your citation.
