Darwin-s personal Library - Biodiversity Heritage Library
    
   Notes and comments scribbled by naturalist Charles Darwin on the pages and in
the margins of his personal library have been made available online for the
first time.
Darwin’s personal scientific library, the majority of which is held at Cambridge
University Library, has been digitized in a collaborative effort involving
Cambridge, the Darwin Manuscripts Project at the American Museum of Natural
History, the Natural History Museum, and the Biodiversity Heritage Library.

A release by the University of Cambridge said that in total, Darwin’s library
amounted to 1,480 books, of which 730 contain abundant research notes in their
margins. These annotated books are now in the process of being digitized.
