New Field Guide Resource

Hello everyone,

You may remember that a year or so ago I sent out a message saying that I
was working on a database listing field guides from around the world. I'm
pleased to report that the U of I News Bureau just sent out a news item on
the database. If you need or use field guides please take a look, and as
always send suggestions for guides to add!
