Overview of digitisation projects for historical literature

Several individual projects are advancing the digitisation of historical literature. The following overview summarises those projects that are most important from a biological viewpoint, being based on data from our internet resource guide and updated dynamically (... You will find these projects in the guide by selecting the resource type "Access on historical literature"). On the level of single digitised works there is no comprehensive catalogue available up to now; at least, titles from the projects BioLib and Animalbase, and from Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) are recorded in our Virtual Catalogue.

More than 400,000 pages already exist and another 200,000 will follow in 2009.
