In-copyright Titles from the 2nd quarter of 2017

From April to June of this year, BHL received permission for 36 new in-copyright titles, keeping pace with the 39 added in the first quarter. The Expanding Access to Biodiversity Literature project, BHL staff, and new members and affiliates all contributed to securing permission and are now working to scan and upload. To put that 36 number in perspective, there are about 650 in-copyright titles in BHL, out of 125,000 total–that’s just a half percent, but it’s growing!

Below are the 36 titles added in the second quarter, in the order permission was secured. For those that have already been scanned or uploaded, links are available. Look for the rest as they’re added to the collection; you can check the recent additions, or see all the permission titles available in BHL on the permissions page. Titles in BHL have been digitized/contributed by the rights holders unless otherwise stated.
