The Biodiversity Heritage Library’s (BHL) free, open-access collections and services enable scientists to find the information they need to identify, describe, and conserve the world’s species and habitats. BHL collections have been recognized as critical to the international scientific community.
The Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL), in its global efforts to digitize biodiversity literature and make it freely available to the world, ensures that this precious knowledge is available to everyone, everywhere. The BHL currently provides access to over 42 million pages and over 87,000 images and is changing the face of research methodology. Scientists around the world are using BHL to identify and classify species, facilitate further scientific research, and support conservation efforts to prevent extinctions.
