  • 1. Contributing Videos to EOL Through YouTube and Vimeo November 2013
  • 2. About EOL The Encyclopedia of Life project (EOL; eol.org) is building an open access collection of biodiversity information. Content on EOL is organized on taxon pages, ranging from kingdom all the way down to the species level. You can share your species videos with EOL through YouTube and Vimeo websites. By sharing your videos of plants, animals, fungi, and microbes you are joining a global community of scientists and nature enthusiasts with a mission to document and analyze life on earth.
  • 3. What Videos Can I Share With EOL? Any videos of taxa that you feel would provide good examples of behavior or information about identification are good choices. You should share materials with EOL only if ONE of the following applies: • You are the copyright owner of the materials to be shared • The copyright owners have consented to a license compatible with the EOL licensing policy • The materials are in the public domain Please read EOL’s Licensing Policy for Content Providers (http://eol.org/info/eol_licensing_policy) and be mindful of whether or not your use of that content is permissible.

Send an email to education@eol.org to let us know you have a video(s) to share and we will subscribe to your YouTube Channel. 6. Videos will be harvested into EOL on a regular basis.
