  • Biodiversity Heritage Library Permission Process Working with non-profit publishers for sharing with the BHL To digitize and mount works under copyright BHL must obtain permission from the copyright holders. Many biodiversity journals and monographs are published by non-profit institutions or learned societies whose mission is to promote research and learning. Some of these institutions have not sold their rights to commercial publishers and are open to sharing with the BHL.
  • Current Permission Agreement: The agreement is non-exclusive. The copyright holder can use the content for other purposes. It does not involve any transfer of copyright to the BHL or its member institutions. It “grants to the current and future member Participating Institutions of the BHL a world-wide, nonexclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicenseable license to digitize and use the Titles (as identified above) in connection with the BHL, including the right to make reproductions in digital form, publicly display, and disseminate the Titles via the BHL and related websites, and create derivative works in digital form based on the Titles. The scope of this license is equivalent to an open source license, which permits others to use, reproduce, supplement, modify, create derivatives, and otherwise use the Titles, for any and all non-commercial purposes, with proper attribution to the Licensor as the source.”
  • BHL License Agreement
  • Process: There is room for some modification of the wording of the draft permission document. When it is finalized, BHL Director sign for the BHL and the Editor-in-chief or Chairperson of the society signs. The process is usually very smooth. >60 titles to date, many published in the US, some of which are published in Europe and Asia.
