How does BHL select content to include in its collection?

BHL welcomes content into its collection that are relevant to the wide range of fields that support biodiversity research. We prioritize the selection of content from our BHL Partner collections as well as biodiversity relevant materials available within the Internet Archive “texts” corpus. For more details about our selection process, please review our collection development policy.
