This talk focused on two projects being carried out by the Missouri Botanical Garden related to the Biodiversity Heritage Library - Art of Life and Engelmann Correspondence. The Art of Life, funded by NEH, is a project to identify and describe the rich natural history illustrations hidden within the pages of BHL literature. The Engelmann Correspondence project, funded by IMLS, is a project to digitize and make available in BHL letters sent to 19th century botanist, George Engelmann by his colleagues in the US and Europe. Both projects are providing new content types to the BHL portal http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/, helping contextualize its published literature, and expanding BHL audiences.
