We are delighted to announce that back issues of our journal, The Naturalist, dating back to 1864 are now freely available to view and download from the Biodiversity Heritage Library.  Several institutions, including Smithsonian Libraries, Natural History Museum London and the American Museum of Natural History undertook the work of scanning the journals to produce very high quality PDF files with optical character recognition to enable the journals to be searched for key words or species names.  We are very grateful indeed for the Biodiversity Heritage Library's support in making this valuable resource available to a wider audience.  Please follow this link to access the digital copies of the journals.  A full back catalogue of printed journals is also available in the YNU Library in York.
