British Columbia Birds now has its own web site: bcbirds.bcfo.ca. It is also accessible from the Publications menu on the BCFO web site.
All past journal articles, with the exception of the current issue and In press articles—available to BCFO members only—are now accessible to everyone as open access articles in PDF format. Articles from all journal issues are also searchable by author, species, or other keywords.
Special thanks to Les Gyug, who added the title, abstract, authors, and keywords to the properties of the PDF file for every article since publication began in 1991, and to Art and Sue Martell, who prepared abstracts and keywords for journal articles from the first four issues of the journal where those attributes were lacking.
These additions should improve the relevance of the British Columbia Birds web site to search engines and thus improve the accessibility of the articles to web searches.
