The Biodiversity Heritage Library for Europe (BHL-Europe)

BHL-Europe is a 3 year project, involving 28 major natural history museums, botanical gardens and other cooperating institutions.

The libraries of the European natural history museums and botanical gardens collectively hold the majority of the world’s published knowledge on the discovery and subsequent description of biological diversity. However, digital access to this knowledge is difficult. The objective of the BHL-Europe project is to make available Europe’s biodiversity information to everyone by improving the interoperability of European biodiversity digital libraries.
