University of Nebraska State Museum Biodiversity Heritage Literature Digitization: Field Expedition Notebooks, Taxon Notebooks, and Other Scholarly Parasitology Literature

Material Description

The University of Nebraska State Museum contains hundreds of thousands of textual items that support the research and teaching missions of the museum. Much of the literature is in copyright but some of it was created by Museum curators and staff and they have given permission to make the digitized versions freely available. Another portion is in the public domain but has not yet been digitized by any other entities. The selected literature particularly supports the Parasitology Division of the UNSM. Subjects include vertebrate and parasite biodiversity, medical parasitology, field expedition notes, and species descriptions. Materials types are listed elsewhere.
