Biodiversity Heritage Library

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.


Please note: This sample of entomology-related content in HathiTrust is mostly historic in nature. To locate print versions of these and other items that you discover in HathiTrust, just click on "Find in a library" within the HathiTrust catalog record.

To execute a more extensive search in HathiTrust, you can used the Advanced Search feature in either the catalog or the full-text search interface. (The catalog interface allows you to do bibliographic searching, i.e. querying descriptive metadata like title, author, subject, ISBN, publisher, and year of publication.The full-text search interface allows you to perform a search for words and phrases as they appear in descriptive metadata AND as they appear within the full-text of the document. This distinction is explained in the short video below.)
