Abstract: Mycological literature is extensive, diverse and often dispersed. The objective of this website is to facilitate access to that literature by providing bibliographic lists of references. The present version of the site provides extensive bibliographic information for mycological publications, most dating from the early 1800s to the 1980s, and covering many works in Russian and Ukrainian. As such, it complements other mycological bibliographic sources on the internet, which concentrate on recent literature and do not attempt to present Cyrillic information in its original form (for example Bibliography of Systematic Mycology and the literature database available on line from the USDA Systematic Botany & Mycology Laboratory). Like the two other mycological bibliographic sources mentioned, this library provides search facilities, so that all available references to work by a specified author can be requested. Unlike those other sources, however, the present site also permits browsing. In addition, the present site provides hyperlinks through those bibliographic records to scanned images of the works to which they refer. The task of scanning existing mycological literature is enormous and is unlikely to be achieved through any single initiative. The present site is therefore offered in a spirit of co-operation with Libri Fungorum and other sites which may be planned or in preparation, and every effort will be made to collaborate with such sites to avoid duplication of effort. As those sites come on-line, they will be advertized here. Future versions of the present site will improve the still incomplete coverage of 19th and 20th century literature, and add information about older and more recent works, with a particular emphasis on earlier publications and non-Latin alphabet publications. Some efforts will also be made to provide indexes allowing access to works dealing with particular fungal groups, associated organism groups, countries and other topics. Access to scanned images will also be increased. Availability of those images will always be limited by copyright. As a result, the scanning programme will prioritize two areas: the first, key early mycological works, which are scientifically important, often hard to access and beyond the restrictions of copyright, and the second, more recent mycological works where the copyright owner consents to their reproduction.
