Breaking New Ground: The Case for Seed Libraries in the Academic Library
Ingalls, Dana
Public Services Quarterly, v13 n2 p78-89 2017
Seed libraries are a relatively new innovation in the library field, offering seeds, gardening information, and the opportunity for community and ecological engagement to members. While they are increasingly popular in public libraries, they have not yet established a foothold in academic libraries. This paper defines the nature and role of seed libraries, the current state of seed libraries in North American universities, and offers recommendations for the establishment of seed libraries in academic libraries.
