The Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL), in its global efforts to digitize biodiversity literature and make it freely available to the world, ensures that the knowledge needed to identify species, facilitate further scientific research, and support conservation efforts is available to everyone, everywhere. Thanks in part to donations from users like you, BHL currently provides access to nearly 40 million pages and over 50,000 images.

The most rewarding measure of BHL's successes comes from the frequent testimonials received from users:
"The BHL website is an extremely valuable resource and is crucial to my research."
"Being in a small town in Africa made accessing literature especially difficult, but I no longer feel so disadvantaged with the advent of BHL."
"BHL makes my research so much easier! I absolutely love it. A million times thank you!"
The BHL's substantial growth and activity has been supported by our dedicated patrons whose gifts we depend on to fund the digitization of additional texts, technical development for the program, and improvement of data curation. This holiday season, as you continue to seek the perfect gift for your loved ones, consider giving a gift to the planet by supporting scientific research and conservation efforts across the globe through a tax-deductible donation to the Biodiversity Heritage Library.
