|Collection Development Policy
Learn more about how we build and maintain our collection as the largest reliable, reputable, and responsive repository of biodiversity literature and archival materials.
The BHL Collections Committee is a voluntary group made up of collection development and metadata experts from various BHL partner institutions. The committee meets regularly to discuss a variety of collection management and curation issues in support of BHL’s strategic goal #1.
We do our best to curate our collection as we notice issues but we rely heavily on our users to let us know where they find errors or problems as well. Please take the time to let us know!
When necessary, content is removed from the BHL collection if it fails to meet our relevancy, quality or copyright compliance requirements.
