An online resource for researchers

I was very excited to receive an invitation to contribute a Guest Blog to the Biodiversity Heritage Library. I’ve been following this fantastic organisation for a while on Facebook and on their website, viewing the regular postings and information they share. Managed by the Smithsonian in New York, the BHL is a collective of major libraries including the British Library in London who are working together to make their collections of digital images widely available to the general public. The pictures and illustrations in thousands of old (and I mean OLD) original books can be viewed and searched by author, topic and key words.  My guest blog about Georgiana Molloy went live on the BHL today.
