Abstract

The Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) aims to provide free and open access to digitised versions of out of copyright biological literature. In Australia, the Biodiversity Heritage Library – Australian node (BHL-Au) is the literature service of the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA). In this paper, the Australian node of the BHL will be discussed, with a focus on how the local collaboration of museums, herbaria and their libraries contributes to the global project aims.
