Looking Forward: The Biodiversity Heritage Library

  1. 1. Created in 2006 ... … with 10 US and UK institutions
  2. 2. Committed to open access… http://bouchoutdeclaration.org/ Our natural world is a source of food, water, resources, protection and enjoyment that our society needs. The richness and complexity of nature, and the speed of new discoveries made possible by genomic and digital technologies, challenge us to find new ways to benefit from and be better custodians of the natural world. Digital information management systems can bring together the wealth of information now dispersed in a myriad of different documents, institutions, and locations. With such systems, we can harness the benefits of rapid discovery and open up our legacy of over 260 years of biological observations. Bouchout Declaration Signatory
