This is an ongoing project to digitise botanical publications and make them available freely to everyone.
If there is a paper that you would like us to scan, please email us.
While we at the BSBI put our own publications online, plenty of other people are also making publications available for free over the internet. Here are some places you can try:
Douglas Simpson’s comprehensive listing of sources of botanical information relating to the British Isles is now a scarce and valuable tome. It was scanned and digitised by Tim Rich and is made available here as a download. Abbreviations have been expanded to make it more readable.
Simpson, N.D. 1960 A Bibliographical Index of the British Flora. Privately printed, Bournemouth. Digitised and expanded by T.C.G. Rich, 2004.
