In the course of doing our business, AHPA staff uses and reviews many internet-based resources to research all manner of issues related to herbs, and to answer our members’ questions about these issues. Like much of the information available in cyberspace, however, not all of the sites that are encountered can be relied on to provide accurate information.
As a service to AHPA members, we have therefore created the Herbal e-Library, which serves as a catalogue of reviewed internet information about herbs. In the spirit of a “bricks and mortar,” or “paper and ink” library, AHPA is not the author of most of the references and resources provided here. Instead, we have played only an organizational role, and have provided enough information on each of the identified links to assist users in choosing which sources might best assist them. Unlike a library, AHPA maintains control over the contents listed here, and does not include, for example, commercial websites or sites that are judged to be insufficiently accurate. The choice of which sites are included in the Herbal e-Library is made at AHPA’s sole discretion.
Is your favorite herbal information website missing from these few provided here? Let us know, as we are always looking for ways to make the AHPA Herbal e-Library more useful and complete!
The included websites have been reviewed and are provided here as resources for researching many of the issues that growers, processors, manufacturers and marketers may need to deal with in their day-to-day business. Categories of websites include:
In identifying these websites AHPA has endeavored to provide accurate description of each. Information contained in quotation marks within these descriptions are statements that the operator of the site has made, unless otherwise indicated. While we have attempted to limit this list to those with which the AHPA staff has some familiarity and confidence, we have no doubt overlooked other sites that are also of value. In addition, AHPA makes no representation as to the accuracy of the information contained at the websites listed here and users of the information found therein are responsible for verifying all such information.
