A new and enhanced commenting system is being planned for BHL. The current commenting system will be disabled on July 5. In December 2015, we launched the ability to add comments to pages in BHL books.
There will be a planned outage of the BHL website for scheduled maintenance on Tuesday, 1 March 2016, beginning at 6pm CST and lasting approximately two hours. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience. During the outage, you can access BHL’s content via Internet Archive.
UPDATE: A new and enhanced commenting system is being planned for BHL. The commenting system described below has been disabled as of July 5, 2016. | We are pleased to announce that we have added the ability to add comments to books in the BHL website! This new feature will allow you to easily share your discoveries while reading BHL books, highlight interesting content, post your expertise for others to see, engage in conversations about BHL books from directly within BHL, and easily discover all of the great posts from your fellow biodiversity-enthusiasts.
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.”
