Scanning and Digitization Working Group

 Mission and Overview

The Scanning and Digitization Working Group is responsible for publishing biodiversity literature online and making it available as part of an open commons called the Biodiversity Heritage Library.  This digitized literature is of value to a wide range of scientists and other users. Through this work, individuals around the world who lack affiliation with major research institutions can search, read, download, and print literature that was previously unavailable to them.
