BHL at the Eighth Meeting of European Bird Curators

BHL recently participated in the 8th Meeting of European Bird Curators, held in Prague, October 3-5, 2013.

Alison Harding, of the Natural History Museum in London, delivered a presentation entitled “BHL: The Vast Library of Life.”  The presentation provided an overview of the Biodiversity Heritage Library and showcased the tools and resources which BHL offers as a free, open access project.

Many attendees were already familiar with BHL and were very complimentary about the ongoing progress of the BHL consortium. Overall, BHL’s participation in the conference was a wonderful experience, providing opportunities to interact directly with some of our users and to gather feedback and answer their questions.
