As a plant taxonomist, what disturbs me is the number of references that
we need available as digital files but that are currently available only
as hard copy or for looking up a single record at a time, e.g., BPH,
IPNI, Authors of Plant Names.

I noticed that IPNI did make a shift, fairly recently, allowing all the
publication data to come up in the initial search, in effect putting these
in a single page (or file). This does contribute to ease of use.
