Thought this from BHL was worth a forwarding. They are always so impressively professional in their promos and outreach.
Also note you can support adding BHL images to Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) by tagging scientific names to images.
Also note you can follow the World Polychaeta Database activities and Polychaeta news items on Twitter.
You don't have to be a Twitter subscriber to read public Twitter streams. There is no nagging to join or unfriendly blocking access, unlike Facebook.

Biodiversity Heritage Library
[reindeer]By providing free access to biodiversity literature, the Biodiversity Heritage Library<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001N9kD2YnqXHh0u63zFBuZM2flYgnkK0yAji6U4wBzX91l-Y4NaG_xixXrJMAQZUDsMATT9sGA8X6RVFZs1kmPZSytCNx7teLrQcZLv01_AVzjNbeWHHKVK_IIvvFYGmJ1> (BHL) is helping scientists identify and conserve life throughout earth. Now, with an extinction rate estimated to be much higher than the "natural" rate, the resources provided by BHL are more essential than ever. In 2012, the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) significantly advanced the breadth and depth of its collections and the opportunities to engage with its digitized resources. BHL added over 12,000 items and over 3.7 million pages this year, increasing its collection to nearly 40 million pages.
This growth was facilitated in part by the addition of two new members to the BHL consortium: the United States Geological Survey and Cornell University. Furthermore, BHL continued to serve new and widespread audiences by establishing a greater presence across social media channels, resulting in over 50,000 new images<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001N9kD2YnqXHjBbjpZ_158OMwnjVC5CCUVHdBO0F4zNeJoKYO9vmlzjgOljFuW8hBEUbpNnMIbEq5HY2cr_eKJDnAlpwMLVdtb-9FZ3tBaxTd2vcPNlTcFaXwSI8piQ45CK5X1rDmuSCp_IkvZusUey9QSJ_9Wxav6>, biodiversity facts and history, and downloads through iTunes U, all free to the public. BHL continues to expand globally, as evidenced by the June, 2012, BHL meeting in Cape Town, South Africa, designed to support the development of a BHL-Africa.
You can support the BHL and its continued momentum by visiting the online donation page<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001N9kD2YnqXHgDphbnXBoQWBN59sBq5-m0wGlEgawWwM60xfsOG3B0zuK_CW7PGiiFkzUE8CVDTZ8cUOlYndR1vAYLF5yJ1bhUQ-DRYsvR7JRut6P4YHZX3QA-7Bu9drQddhwLVJZ18Vo=>. To learn more about BHL, I encourage you to try it!
