Garden Literature Index

Alaska Botanical Garden members can now search over 300 gardening and horticulture journals online thanks to a special donor contribution. This database provides popular, practical, scholarly and R&D literature on gardening and horticulture in one place.

The Garden Literature Index (GLI) is made available through the EBSCOhost Research Databases. It indexes and abstracts over 300 journals on gardening, horticulture, landscape design, botany, ecology, plant conservation, garden management, and horticultural therapy, with a special emphasis on environmentally sustainable gardening practices. Its target audience ranges from gardening enthusiasts to horticulture students to professional landscape designers. Most titles are in English and include, among many others, Agroforestry Systems, American Horticulturist, Better Homes & Gardens, Biodiversity & Conservation, Carolina Gardener, Community Gardener, Ecological Landscaper, Gardener for the Prairies, Journal of Environmental Horticulture, Journal of the Bromeliad Society, Martha Stewart Living, PlantAmnesty, Southern California Gardener, and Wildflower: Journal of the National Wildflower Research Center.

HOW DOES IT WORK? GLI uses the well-designed and effective EBSCOhost interface, with its Basic Search (a straightforward Find box), along with the Advanced Search and its power to limit results to Full Text, by dates, authors, and certain publications, with Expanders to search for related words within the full text and Boolean operators.
