Virtual Libraries, Portals to Knowledge.
A wealth of information is now available online through databases and search facilites for recent journals (such as JSTOR and BioOne), through nomenclatural databases such as the International Plant Names Index (IPNI), and especially through multi-institutional collaborations to scan and index historical literature, such as Botanicus and the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL). BHL also makes available specialized serials and more recent publications such as floras. Researchers can now find and view original literature no matter where they work; many of the titles are rare and available physically in only a few libraries. This workshop will give participants background information about these resources and will explore how to use them.
