Inspiring discovery through free access to biodiversity knowledge.

The Biodiversity Heritage Library improves research methodology by collaboratively making biodiversity literature openly available to the world as part of a global biodiversity community.
BHL also serves as the literature component of the Encyclopedia of Life .

  
The Biodiversity Heritage Library is pleased to present two online exhibitions, Latino Natural History and Early Women in Science . These exhibitions were made possible through funding from the Smithsonian Women's Committee.

Resources used in curating the exhibitions are listed below.
