For the study of specimens, the BC herbarium at the Botanical Institute of Barcelona (IBB) offers a consultation room for researchers. Consultation is restricted only to researchers from recognized scientific research institutions.

To arrange a visit please contact in advance with the curator of BC herbarium, Dr. Neus Ibáñez, either by phone (+34 932890611) or e-mail (nibanez@ibb.csic.es). It is important to mention the purpose of the visit and the material to be consulted. Thus, the herbarium staff will ensure the presence of the requested material in the herbarium. Before the visit, please check the visitor policy of the herbarium. If destructive samplings of specimens are necessary, please consult policies on this issue.

Daily opening hours of the herbarium are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Work sessions outside of this schedule can be arranged if requested with sufficient time in advance.

The study of the specimens will be done in the consultation room equipped with magnifying lenses, power sockets and Wi-Fi network.
