The Biodiversity Heritage Library is an open access digital library of more than 57 million pages. Focused on biodiversity literature, it contains many rare materials with the original naming and descriptions of plants and animals. The historic, artistic, and scientific materials are useful across a wide range of disciplines. Attendees will learn to search the BHL catalog as well as the stunning collection of public domain images.
