IBC Transition

20 Mar 2019 - 10:34 -- Ferran Gil

We are pleased to announce that the Internet Bird Collection and the Macaulay Library and eBird at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology are joining forces. The IBC is full of tremendous contributors and resources that will soon find a new home with the Macaulay Library—a multimedia archive of birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and insects. This new collaboration will leverage the long-term archival capabilities of the 90-year-old Macaulay Library (ML) and the powerful online tools for birders developed by eBird. The contributions by the IBC community have been critical, and the ML staff greatly values the opportunity to engage with IBC contributors during this time of transition to ensure that their hard work and efforts around media can be put to their best potential use. Learn more and take part in the transition by visiting the Macaulay Library’s website.
