|Collection Development Policy
Learn more about how we build and maintain our collection as the most comprehensive, reliable, reputable repository of data-rich biodiversity literature, and other original materials, to support a response to global challenges. Our new policy was released November 2022.
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 time and resources allow. We also appreciate hearing from BHL users about errors or problems with our content or services. 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.
