Using the Biodiversity Heritage Library

Recently, the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) asked me to answer some questions about how I use their database for their ongoing blog series of BHL users. If you do anything related to the history of the life sciences, you probably already know what a helpful resource it is. How do you use BHL or similar databases? In the interview, I brought up the fact that I have found it helpful to use hardcopies alongside the BHL's searchable text for some types of sources. Have you had similar experiences? Other reactions to the post?

FYI, they asked me to do this after commenting on one of the BHL's Facebook posts, so it pays to interact online!
