When an institution adopts one of the Bibliography models introduced with EMu 8, it is possible to populate records with bibliographic information drawn directly from the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL).

  • Configuring EMu to access BHL requires an API key and various Registry entries to be set:

    BHL API Key Registry entry

    Enables EMu to interact with Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL)'s API in order to search the BHL collection.

    BHL EndPoint Registry entry

    Specify that EMu uses the latest Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) API.

  • Details about keeping EMu records up to date when BHL updates its date can be found here.
