The Biodiversity Heritage Library


Ten major natural history museum libraries, botanical libraries, and research institutions have joined to form the Biodiversity Heritage Library Project. The group is developing a strategy and operational plan to digitize the published literature of biodiversity held in their respective collections. This literature will be available through a global “biodiversity commons.” Participating institutions include the British National History Museum and the Smithsonian Institution Libraries in Washington, D.C.
