Inspiring discovery through free access to biodiversity knowledge.

The Biodiversity Heritage Library improves research methodology by collaboratively making biodiversity literature openly available to the world as part of a global biodiversity community.

Help us add MACHINE TAGS to our images to supplement Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) species pages with images from the BHL collection. Examples of machine tags include:


“taxonomy:binomial=Aegotheles savesi” (include quotations)
taxonomy:family=Fabaceae (all one word, no quotations necessary)
taxonomy:genus=Rhinoceros
taxonomy:common=Cardinal

For more information about machine tagging, please see these instructions.

Machine tagging is the best-case scenario, but if you would rather simply tag our images with normal tags as you would any other Flickr image, please feel free. We encourage you to help us tag our images with taxonomic information, geographic information, color, etc.

The @BioDivLibrary Flickr collection is specially curated by book, subject, and contributor to make it easier for you to find images related to specific research needs.

In addition to this collection, over 2 million BHL images have been uploaded to the IA Book Images Flickr stream as part of the Art of Life project. These images are identified and uploaded in bulk using an algorithm. They offer a great opportunity for serendipitous discovery via browsing.
