How can I use BHL data or collections in Wikimedia projects?

We welcome the use of our data and collections in Wikimedia projects. For example: BHL’s collections can be used as references for Wikipedia articles. BHL metadata (e.g. authors, scientific names, bibliographic references, etc.) can be used in Wikidata, Wikicite, and Wikispecies. BHL images can be uploaded to Wikicommons.

All of BHL’s collections and data are open access. Collections are either public domain or available under Creative Commons BY-NC-SA licenses. BHL makes its metadata available for public use under the CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain Dedication license.
