A great new source

Posted in digitized sources on May 1, 2011 by Robert-Jan Wille

The very interesting website Het geheugen van Nederland has published 20.000 images of fish, birds and mammals last week. It was even in the newspapers. The images are all from the library of the Zoological Society Natura Artis Magistra, the ‘ Artisbibliotheek’, which is now part of the library of the University of Amsterdam’s.

It is a great source.  You can search for animals, using modern dutch names, modern latin or even the nineteenth century latin names.

Look at this beauty!
