Title: Searchable Ornithological Research Archive (SORA)
Title abbreviated: SORA
Identifier alternative:
Creator: American Ornithologists' Union <McLean, Va.>; et al.
Abstract: The SORA project is an open access electronic journal archive and is the product of a collaboration between the American Ornithologists Union, the Cooper Ornithological Society, the Association of Field Ornithologists, the Wilson Ornithological Society and the University of New Mexico libraries and IT department. This archive provides access to an extensive Ornithological literature of international scope, and detailed material documenting the history of Ornithology in North America over the last 120 years. The content of this site includes the following titles: The Auk (1884-1999), The Condor (1899-2000), The Journal of Field Ornithology (1930-1999), The Wilson Bulletin (1889-1999), Pacific Coast Avifauna (1900-1974) and Studies in Avian Biology (1978-1999). The North American Bird Bander will also be available in the near future. The content is available in searchable and browseable formats and documents can be downloaded as pdf or djvu files. Djvu files rely on an “acrobat” type browser plug-in ( for viewing and are approximately 1/4 the size of pdf files for faster downloads. Web browsers must have the ability to read java script (make sure it is turned on). The site is still under development and additional features and journals (JFO browse feature and NABB for example) will be added as the materials become available and the programming is completed.
