[Taxacom] Request for journal-specific bibliographies

As part of my efforts to track down articles in the Biodiversity  
Heritage Library (BHL) I am searching for lists of articles and  
bibliographies. The idea is to take information from these, such as  
article title, volume number, and pagination, and look these up in  
BHL. The results are available at http://biostor.org/ , which can be  
accessed with a web browser, or using standard bibliographic tools  
(such as EndNote http://biostor.org/endnote.php, Zotero http://biostor.org/zotero.php 
, and Mendeley http://biostor.org/mendeley.php ).

Sometimes journals themselves publish lists of articles published  
(e.g., http://biostor.org/reference/12611 ), and in other cases I've  
found EndNote files on the web (typically for specific taxa). But  
there are some huge holes in BioStor, which I'm seeking to fill.

I'm particularly interested in lists of articles from the Annals and  
Magazine of Natural History, and the Proceedings of the U S National  
Museum. Lists of articles for the Bulletins of the British Museum  
would also be useful. You can gauge progress so far by viewing the  
list of journals so far at http://biostor.org/journals.php
