on-line literature resources

Dear All,


Recently I have been using two fantastic on-line resources for downloadable pdf digital scans life sciences literature: Biodiversity Heritage Library (http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/) and Botanicus (http://www.botanicus.org/browse) The former is a consortium of 10 major botanical institutes; the latter is based at Missouri BG.


The databases are searchable in a number of different ways and together cover a great deal of the early (and thus often hard to get) aroid literature, notably that in journals such as Bonplandia, Oesterriches Botanischer Wochenblatt and O.B. Zeitschrift, Annales Museum Lugdunum-Batavi, and much more. The file download in fast, and its free! Most importantly the scans are of the original literature, as published, and thus for taxonomists very useful for checking types, and all the small foibles that can affect publication status.
