No more leafing through musty volumes or racing to the library just before closing time—at least if you're looking for publications from the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. This new virtual bookshelf lets you download all back and current issues for four of the museum's scientific titles, including its Bulletin and Novitates series. Housing papers from 1881 to the present, the archive encompasses paleontology, geology, systematics, and other fields. For instance, you'll find anthropologist Franz Boas's 1909 observations of the Kwakiutl people of Vancouver Island, Canada, and several works by evolutionist Stephen J. Gould.
