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.
