BHL Highlighted As A Case Study For Sustainability

View Full Size ImageWe’re pleased to announce that the Biodiversity Heritage Library is profiled in Searching for Sustainability: Strategies from Eight Digitized Special Collections, a major study funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services and conducted by Ithaka S+R in partnership with the Association of Research Libraries.  The study shares good practices for teams planning for and managing digitized resources, some of which are drawn from the experiences of those responsible for BHL’s collections.

As shown in the case study, BHL’s sustainability relies heavily on a committed partnership, global participation, and user centered design.  To learn more about each of these, and about BHL as a sustainability model in general, visit the BHL Case Study directly at:
