DRL Releases Audubon's Birds of America website

The Digital Research Library (DRL) has digitized and mounted online the University of Pittsburgh's rare and complete set of John James Audubonís Birds of America. Each of the 435 plates link to their respective narrative within Audubonís companion publication, his Ornithological Biography, also digitized as part of this project. No other complete set of the double elephant folio edition of the Birds of America is publicly available online in such high detail. Both of these sets were scanned as part of our larger efforts to digitize and make accessible contents from the Darlington Memorial Library. Read the press release.
