uBio, in conjunction with the Zoological Society of London, would like
to announce the completion of the digital version of Volumes 1-9 of
Nomenclator Zoologicus, a compilation of approximately 347,000
zoological genera and subgenera from 1758-1994.

uBio, with permission from the Zoological Society of London, undertook
the digital conversion of Volumes 1-9 of Nomenclator Zoologicus
supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and GBIF at the MBLWHOI
Library in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.

Final revision of this digital work continues.  We are seeking expert
volunteers to review 100 page segments to ensure that the final
digitized product is as close to a perfect reproduction as possible.
These editors will receive a data DVD containing the final product and
all page images for offline availability.  Anyone interested please
contact dremsen at

The final version of these data will be publicly available online
through the ZSL and uBio web sites.  Any comments are welcome.
