New Field Guide Resource
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!

International Field Guides Web Site merges Schmidt’s own book, “A
Guide to Field Guides: Identifying the Natural History of North
America” (Libraries Unlimited, 1999), and its companion Web site,
International Field Guides, plus 2,000 new titles.
