View Full Size Image

Adding to the second quarter’s successful haul, BHL secured permission for 52 titles in July, August and September. That brings 2016’s total to 108 in-copyright titles thus far! As in the previous two quarters, most of these were added as a result of the Expanding Access to Biodiversity Literature project, with significant contributions from the Albany Museum (Grahamstown, South Africa) and the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI).
