Live Demo: Birds of the World by The Cornell Lab of Ornithology (July 15 Niagara College)
From Laura Kammermeier
Enjoy this Live Demonstration of Birds of the World, the world’s leading scholarly ornithology database published by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. This powerful electronic resource brings deep, scholarly content from four celebrated works of ornithology into a single platform where biologists, students, and birders can find comprehensive life history information on birds.
We organized this demo just for librarians. We offer an online tour of this impressively dynamic resource and point out some of its lesser-known features. We also describe how it helps researchers, conservationists, and birding enthusiasts deepen their understanding of birds and make critical decisions that guide biodiversity research and conservation. Registration required.
Expect this presentation to cover:
- What is Birds of the World?
- What makes it unique?
- Live demonstration of the website (species and family profiles)
- Lesser-known features
- Access and pricing info
