Over the past three months, BHL has welcomed two new European Affiliates: Bibliothèque cantonale et universitaire – Lausanne in Switzerland and the Mendel Museum of Masaryk University in the Czech Republic.
The Stressors and Drivers of Food Security: Evidence from Scientific Collections workshop was organized by Scientific Collections International (SciColl) at the National Agricultural Library in Beltsville, Maryland, 19-21 September 2016.
Adriana Marroquin recently joined the BHL as the Field Notes Project Manager. This isn’t Adriana’s first time with the BHL or Smithsonian Libraries. She interned for the BHL and the Smithsonian Botany & Horticulture library after graduate school, and later worked as a library technician at the Anthropology, and American Art/Portrait Gallery libraries.
Get ready for a ghoulishly good time this October…Page Frights is coming! From 1-31 October, libraries, archives, and other cultural institutions around the world will be gearing up for Halloween by sharing spooky, creepy, or otherwise frightening books and images from their collections on social media using the hashtag #PageFrights. Follow along and join the conversation on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, and other social media sites.
BHL’s existence depends on the financial support of its patrons. Help us keep this free resource alive!
The Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) is the world’s largest open access digital library for biodiversity literature and archives. Headquartered at the Smithsonian Libraries and Archives in Washington, D.C., BHL operates as a worldwide consortium of natural history, botanical, research, and national libraries working together to digitize the natural history literature held in their collections and make it freely available for open access as part of a global “biodiversity community.”
