Over the past few weeks, we here at the Biodiversity Heritage Library have been hard at work developing a user (that’s you!) survey. We’d like to know more about what you like about us, naturally, but we also need to know what you don’t like. As you may already be aware, the BHL is a work in progress. As such, we need your input to help guide the progression of our work over the next few years. We humbly request your assistance in responding to the BHL Survey 2010. This survey is a key component in our continuing efforts to build a library which is responsive to and serves the needs of our user communities (again, that’s you!). We can’t emphasize enough the value we place on your responses and ideas. They are sincerely appreciated and vital to further development.
The BHL is presently comprised over 26 million scanned pages of biodiversity literature, and has established partnerships with projects in Europe (BHL-Europe) and China (BHL-China) and is engaged in discussion to establish partner projects in Brazil, Australia, and Egypt. The development of this survey was a joint project of the BHL and BHL- Europe member institutions and the responses will inform further development as we continue to embrace our global heritage of biodiversity.
