The herbarium sheets are catalogued by number and detail the taxonomic, geographic, and collection data for each specimen (including cross-references to the applicable support collections and the computerized inventory database). In addition to the herbarium sheets, the Museum's collection contains over 70,000 specimens on microscope slides, in boxes, or in the liquid-preserved collection. The Algae Collection of the U.S. National Herbarium has been inventoried and compiled into a computerized database. The type collection is searchable on the World Wide Web. The main collection is currently accessible only by in-house staff.
