Researchers who want to browse the historic bird literature should take a gander at the Searchable Ornithological Research Archive (SORA), hosted by the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque. This Web library, named for the marsh-dwelling sora, holds more than 100 years' worth of The Condor, The Auk, and The Wilson Bulletin, along with shorter spans of the North American Bird Bander, Studies in Avian Biology, and other ornithological titles. A search function lets you scan the full texts of all the journals, and you can download articles as PDFs or in the more concise DjVu format, which requires a free plug-in to view. The newest volumes date to 2000.
