In order to make the collection more accessible online to the world, CUL has joined the Biodiversity Heritage Library and Mann Library has made a commitment to digitize more of the extraordinary Comstock entomology rare book collection. Already more than 4,000 CUL previously-digitized titles from all aspects of natural history have been added to BHL.
